The police in Las Vegas have reportedly arrested a man in connection with the murder of Tupac Shakur, the late US rapper.
The legendary rapper and prolific figure in hip-hop was fatally shot on September 7, 1996, in a drive-by incident in Las Vegas at the age of 25.
He was shot multiple times while leaving a boxing match at the MGM Grand Hotel.
The identity of his killer has remained unknown for nearly three decades.
But according to AP, the suspect — Duane “Keffe D” Davis — was arrested on Friday and charged with murder with the use of a deadly weapon.
The news outlet quoted prosecutors as saying that the Nevada grand jury indicted Davis over the killing.
Davis’ arrest comes two months after Las Vegas police raided his wife’s home on July 17 in neighbouring Henderson. Documents said police were looking for items “concerning the murder of Tupac”.
Davis has long claimed that he was not one of the shooters.
In 2017, Tupac was posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by Snoop Dogg.
He was also honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2023, a testament to his legacy as an award-winning rapper, activist, and actor.
With over 75 million records sold worldwide, his contributions to the music industry continue to resonate with global audiences.
