Police says Tupac's murder remains open homicide case

The Las Vegas Police department has confirmed that the murder of rap star Tupac Shakur remains an open homicide case. After six days in the hospital, he passed away.

Anderson, who has always been a suspect in this case, died two years after Shakur's death, in a shooting in Los Angeles.

Back in February, a member of the Crips confessed on camera to being involved in Shakur's death.

The story of Tupac's infamous shooting in Vegas was resurfaced this week after former gang member Keefe D aka Duane Keith Davis admitted that he was prepared to reveal the truth behind the murder.

Yet at the time Keefe D still refused to name the killer, saying that he was "going to keep it for the code of the streets".

According to Keffe D, the fatal shots came from the back of his vehicle, where Anderson and another friend were seated.


In an interview on the BET show "Death Row Chronicles", Keffe D explained he is the only person still alive with the details of Tupac's death, and the reason he is speaking up now is because he has cancer.

According to Keefe D, Shakur was standing up in the auto, his upper body emerging through the sun roof.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer Laura Meltzer said in a statement that police are "aware of the statements made in the BET interview regarding the Tupac case". "All the chicks was like 'Tupac, ' and he was like 'Hey, ' like a celebrity, like he was in a parade".

Now, in the documentary "Unsolved, the Tupac and Biggie Murders", Anderson's uncle Keefe D, who was riding in a auto with him, confirms it was him who pulled the trigger. Even Tupac wouldn't say who shot him back in 1996 before he died. "As a result of those statements we have spent the last several months reviewing the case in its entirety". However, according to officials, that's not the case and it remains unsolved.

A source close to the investigation tells News 3 that LVMPD is considering an arrest warrant for murder.
