The Las Vegas police department has released the mugshot of the guy arrested for the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur.

Investigators said Duane Keith “Keffe D” Davis, 60, was arrested in Las Vegas on Friday morning, September 30. In July, his wife’s Henderson home was searched as part of the ongoing investigation into the event.

When 2pac Shakur, at 25 years old, was exiting a boxing match on the Las Vegas Strip, he was shot and killed.

His untimely death has generated conspiracy theories and a decades-long investigation.

Authorities painted Davis as the mastermind of a scheme to kill Shakur in vengeance for an attack on his nephew at a news conference on Friday.

Davis has long said he was in the front seat of the white Cadillac that pulled up behind Shakur’s car when shots were fired from the back seat, killing the musician. Six days later, the rapper died after being shot four times.

“For 27 years, the family of Tupac Shakur has been waiting for justice,” said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Kevin McMahill at the news conference.

“The investigation started on the night of September 7th, 1996,” McMahill said. “It is far from over. It has taken countless hours, really decades, of work by the men and women of our homicide section to get to where we are today.”

The murder, according to the homicide lieutenant of the police force, Jason Johansson, was a “retaliatory” strike following a fight between two gangs with headquarters in Compton, California. According to Johansson, Shakur and Marion “Suge” Knight, the former CEO of Death Row Records, belonged to the Mob Piru gang in Compton, while Davis belonged to the Southside Compton Crips.

Shakur was in town to watch Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand Hotel. The gathering was also attended by members of the Southside Compton Crips, including Davis and his nephew Orlando Anderson.

“As both groups were leaving the fight, members of Death Row Records spotted Orlando Anderson near an elevator bank inside the MGM and at that time they began to kick and punch him near that elevator bank,” said Johansson, showing hotel surveillance footage of the fight. Shakur and Knight were visible among the men who attacked Anderson.

“Little did anyone know that it is this incident right here that would ultimately lead to the retaliatory shooting and death of Tupac Shakur,” he said.
