LAS VEGAS – Retired Metro Sergeant Chris Carroll, who was the first officer on the scene the night Tupac Shakur was shot, commented on the reopened Las Vegas homicide investigation.
Carroll was surprised that the search warrant was executed nearly 27 years after the incident, but he was pleased that it was being carried out and hoped it would bring the case closure.
He believes the search warrant was issued because of Keefe D, the uncle of Orlando Anderson, who was suspected of shooting and killing Shakur.
Keefe D told police that his nephew was culpable for the shooting but was never charged because he aided in the investigation. Keefe D has recently published a book and made television appearances in which he admits his involvement in Shakur’s demise.
Carroll acknowledges that this is still a difficult case to prosecute due to the fact that the majority of those involved have passed away and there is little physical evidence remaining.
The search warrant executed at the residence of Keefe D yielded laptops, computers, photographs, documents, and forty-caliber cartridges.
Carroll believes it would be significant if the cartridges could be matched to those used in the murder of Tupac, but he doubts this will be possible 26 years later.
Additionally, he believes that any evidence discovered in Keefe D.’s residence linking him to the vehicle involved in the crime would be significant.
