- Keefe is the only suspect who is still alive.
- Knight is currently behind bars serving a 28yr sentence
- Suge was an eyewitness of the 1996 shooting
Suge Knight will not be testifying against Duane ‘’Keefe D’Davis in the 2 Pac murder case, despite being an eyewitness of the 1996 shooting.
The 60-year-old former gang member has been charged with “murder with the use of a deadly weapon with the intent to promote, further or assist a criminal gang,” marking the first time charges have been made in the 27-year-old case.
Knight, the 58-year-old Death Row Records co-founder, told TMZ that he believes police have arrested the wrong man for Tupac’s murder, and stated that he would not be taking the stand in court.
“Let’s get one thing straight, first and foremost: me and Keefe D played on the same Pop Warner football team. And whatever circumstances — if he had an involvement with anything, if he didn’t have an involvement with anything, I wouldn’t wish somebody going to prison on my worst enemy.”

Knight, who is currently behind bars serving a 28yr sentence for voluntary manslaughter also claimed that Keefe D’s nephew, Orlando Anderson was not the shooter, contrary to popular belief.
“There were only two people in the car; ‘Pac’s not gonna tell the story, I ain’t gonna tell the story,” said the former record executive, who was sat next to 2Pac and also wounded during the fatal drive-by shooting.
“But I can tell you this: I never had nothing bad to say about Orlando because he wasn’t the shooter It wasn’t Anderson, so that’s all I got to say about that part.”
Smith was allegedly sat in the backseat of the car from which the shots were fired. Detectives believe Anderson was sat next to him, while Keefe D and another man named Terrence Brown were sat up front.
Keefe is the only suspect who is still alive. He is alleged to have orchestrated the hit as “retribution” against 2Pac, who alongside his entourage had attacked Anderson in the lobby of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas the night of September 7, 1996.
