Tupac's Murderer Now Given Bail

Duane “Keffe D” Davis, 60, has been granted house arrest, only if he can post a bail of $750,000 set by a Judge from Nevada. 


Davis has been charged with orchestrating the murder of Tupac Shakur, a famous rapper who was murdered in 1996. 


The suspect was arrested in September 2023 while on a walk near his home in Las Vegas.


A couple of hours later, prosecutors announced in the court that a grand jury had indicted Davis with one count of murder with a deadly weapon. 


If convicted, there will be a sentencing enhancement added to the murder charge for gang activity that can add up to 20 more years incarcerated.


Tupac was shot while at an intersection on the Las Vegas strip in 1996, with Davis publicly claiming the person pulling the trigger was his nephew. 


Although Mr. Davis is not the man who pulled the trigger, he is on trial for his association in the murder. 


Davis is a self proclaimed gangster and is associated with the Crips gang; he admitted that he provided the gun used in the drive-by shooting in his 2019 memoir, “Compton Street Legend”.


Duane has pleaded not guilty to first degree murder and is able to serve house arrest with electronic monitoring provided he can post the heavy bail of $750,000.


Steve Wolfson, the Clark County District Attorney, told reporters a “source hearing” may be held in order to ensure the bail money is being obtained in legal manners.


Until the bail is posted, he will remain in the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas. 


Davis’ attorney, Robert Arroyo requested for Davis to be released on house arrest on a lower bail as he is not a danger to the community; he says that if his client wanted to flee, he would have ran away years ago


"If his guilt is so overwhelming, what’s been happening for 15 years?” Mr Arroyo said. “Why did [authorities] wait 15 years to make the arrest?"

ABC News reported that Davis is a “very very high danger to the community” especially to those who may testify against him on trial. 


Despite the attempts, Davis’ bail will not change.
