In Nevada, one can face charges, including murder, for aiding and abetting in the commission of a crime.

The police in Las Vegas said:

“Duane Davis was the shot caller for this group of individuals that committed this crime, and he orchestrated the plan that was carried out.”

Why suspect killed Tupac

According to CNN, authorities depicted Davis as the mastermind behind a scheme to seek revenge and assassinate Shakur following an assault on his nephew.

Davis has consistently positioned himself at the location of the crime, asserting that he occupied the front seat of the white Cadillac that pulled up alongside Shakur's vehicle, from which shots were fired in the back seat, ultimately claiming the life of the musician.

Shakur sustained four gunshot wounds and passed away six days later.

In interviews and his 2019 memoir titled Compton Street Legend, Davis openly acknowledged that he supplied the firearm used in the drive-by shooting.

How much was Tupac's ring sold for?

In June, the legendary ring worn by the late hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur during his final public appearance was sold at an auction for a staggering KSh 142 million.

The remarkable piece of jewellery was designed by Tupac himself, drawing inspiration from a book he read while incarcerated on the teachings of Italian philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli.

Deeply connected to his personal life, the ring bears the engraved words "Pac & Dada 1996," with "Dada" referring to his girlfriend, Kidada Jones.
