Las Vegas police have arrested a man in connection with the 1996 murder of rap legend Tupac Shakur, who was shot dead in a drive-by shooting.

The suspect, identified as Duane’ Keege D’ Davis, was taken into custody on Friday morning, according to the Associated Press. The charges against him have not been disclosed yet.

Davis’ arrest comes two months after the police searched his home as “part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation,” NBC reported. The police reportedly seized some items from his residence, including a Pokeball USB drive, a black iPhone, two iPads, and a purple Toshiba laptop.

Shakur was killed on September 7, 1996, after attending a boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He and Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight were on their way to a nightclub when an unidentified gunman fired 14 shots, hitting Shakur four times, ultimately leading to his death days later.

Shakur’s murder has been one of the most notorious unsolved cases in the history of hip-hop. Several theories and suspects have emerged over the years, but no one has been officially charged or convicted for the crime.

Shakur is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential rappers of all time. He sold over 75 million records worldwide and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017.
