House police raided in Tupac murder investigation reportedly linked to uncle of his rumoured killer

The house police raided in the Tupac Shakur murder investigation is reportedly linked to the uncle of his rumoured killer.
The rapper, behind tracks such as 'All Eyes on Me' and 'Changes', was murdered at the age of 25 in September 1996.
He was killed one block from the Las Vegas strip. On the same night, he had attended a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand Plaza.
Tupac was shot four times in his car while waiting at a red light and died days later in the University Medical Center, Las Vegas.
However, the case of his murder has remained unsolved now for over 20 years.
And in a new development, on Monday of this week (17 July), Las Vegas police reportedly searched a home owned by the wife of former Crips gang member, Keefe D, according to TMZ.
He has previously claimed to being in the car with a man who shot and killed the late rapper.
The 78-year-old, whose real name is Duane Davies, claims he is the uncle of Orlando Anderson - who has long been considered a prime suspect in the case.
On the night Tupac was shot, he got into a fight with Anderson, who'd previously had an altercation with a member of the rapper’s Death Row Records crew. Anderson was killed in an unrelated gang shootout in 1998.
Those who know anything about the Tupac case will know Keefe D has done interviews about the rapper’s murder.
In 2018, during the 10-part Netflix docuseries Unsolved, the Tupac and Biggie Murders, he claimed it was Orlando who pulled the trigger.
Police said that the search warrant was executed on a house in Henderson.
Video footage of the home being searched in connection to this murder showed armoured police vehicles showing up on the residential street on the outskirts of Las Vegas.
About 15 miles from where the shooting took place in 1996, a neighbour on the street of the house search told the Las Vegas Review Journal that the police ‘yelled at the occupants to come outside unarmed and with their hands up’.
They added that the people in the house ‘complied, but it did not appear as if anyone was arrested’.
Las Vegas Police told LADbible: “LVMPD can confirm a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada on July 17, 2023, as part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation. We will have no further comment at this time."
