Tupak murder suspect Duane ‘Keefe D’ Davis Granted $750K Bail

Duane Davis and Tupac Shakur

Several news outlets have confirmed that the man charged with the shooting death of late cultural icon Tupac Shakur has been granted bail and is free to walk until his criminal trial.

At a court hearing on Tuesday, attorneys for Duane “Keefe D” Davis were able to persuade a judge that Davis was not a danger to society or a flight risk if he was released on bail until his trial. Davis, 60, was first charged with Shakur’s death in September and has remained behind bars ever since.

Davis has boasted in interviews that he was in the car that fired the shots that killed Shakur on September 7, 1996, while riding in the passenger seat of Suge Knight’s BMW following the Mike Tyson vs. Bruce Seldon fight at the MGM Las Vegas. Despite the fact that Davis was not the trigger man, he is the only survivor from 27 years ago who prosecutors can charge with murder.

Davis’ attorneys argued that if Davis was so dangerous, why did it take authorities nearly 30 years to apprehend him, despite the fact that Davis was in the car that killed Pac in a drive-by shooting? His lawyers also maintained his not-guilty plea, claiming he only mentioned Pac’s murder for entertainment/monetary gain, but prosecutors argued this guy was a cold-blooded killer who should not be on the streets.

Davis’ $750K bail isn’t small change, and unless he can find someone to post that kind of bread, he’ll be locked up until the trial. If he is released, he will be required to wear an ankle monitor while under house arrest.
