BET Interview Opens New Look Into Tupac Murder Case

Published

on

Tupac’s murder is still unsolved but there might be a new lead in the case.

BET documentary that featured an interview with the uncle of a onetime person of interest in Tupac Shakur’s 1996 drive-by murder has resulted in a renewed look at the homicide by Las Vegas police.

In an interview that aired in February on the docuseries Death Row Chronicles, Keffe D (aka Duane Keith Davis) said he was in the front seat when someone in the back seat opened fire on a car carrying Shakur and Suge Knight on September 7, 1996 the Las Vegas Strip, killing Shakur at age 25.

Davis’ cousin, Orlando Anderson, was one of the men identified as being in the back seat of the car that shot at Shakur, who was hit four times and later died at a local hospital. Anderson, a member of the Southside Crips and a aperson of interest in the murder investigation, was shot and killed in a gang fight in 1998.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told local outlets Wednesday that Davis’ interview prompted a renewed look at the case, which they say remains open. No arrests are imminent despite some media reports suggesting otherwise, according to police.

“We are aware of the statements made in a BET interview regarding the Tupac case,” they said in a statement. “As a result of those statements we have spent the last several months reviewing the case in its entirety. Various reports that an arrest warrant is about to be submitted are inaccurate. This case still remains an open homicide case.”

The story of Jemel Roberson is another American tragedy with police violence.

After hearing the story of the security guard gunned down by the cops, Kanye West decided to donate to the family. Kanye made multiple donations of $15,000 via a GoFundMe page that was set up to help Roberson’s family. The page’s goal of $150,000 has been exceeded and currently stands at $302,625.

Witnesses said a Midlothian police officer responding to a shooting inside a south suburban bar shot at the wrong person early Sunday morning.

After security asked a group of drunken men to leave Manny’s Blue Room Bar around 4 a.m. Sunday, witnesses said someone came back with a gun and opened fire. Security returned fire, and according to witnesses, 26-year-old armed security guard Jemel Roberson apprehended one of the men involved outside.

“He had somebody on the ground with his knee in back, with his gun in his back like, ‘Don’t move,'” witness Adam Harris said.

Soon after, witnesses said, an officer responding to the scene fired at Roberson — killing him.

Ice Cube and LL Cool J are ready to start their own sports network.

Cube and Mr. Smith are apart of a group with billionaire Carolyn Rafaelian that are trying to bid for the sports stations Disney has to sell off from their Fox deal.

According to TMZ Sports, Disney got the 22 stations as part of its $71 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox. But, officials believe that since Disney is already the majority owner of ESPN, controlling the 22 sports stations would give them too much power in the sports TV landscape.

Other potential bidders include private equity firms Apollo Global Management, Blackstone Group and he Sinclair Broadcast Group.
