Duane 'Keefe D' Davis, 60, was taken into custody last week by detectives and has been charged with murder with use of a deadly weapon over the 1996 shooting. New footage of his arrest shows the moment Davis brags that he's a 'pro' when being bundled into the back of the police car - as well as the fact he's allegedly implicated in the 'biggest case in Las Vegas history.'
He told officers, who emerged from an unmarked vehicle to arrest him: 'I don't give a s***' and 'I ain't worried.'

One of the officers tells Davis to 'have a seat right in here' inside the police car, before the man made his way inside and tells them: 'I am pro dude. I got it.'
The arresting officer, clearly stunned at Davis' confidence, said: 'He said I am pro. Alright.'
During the arrest video, the murder suspect also joked about wanting to drink some water and being thirsty as police checked if he had weapons on him and cuffed his wrists.
The clips of his historic arrest were circulating online last night.
Following the news last week, Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo described Davis as the 'on-ground, on-site commander' who 'ordered the death' of Shakur. Davis was denied bail by Clark County District Judge Jerry Wiese.
Shakur was 25 years old when he was shot four times in the chest on September 7, 1996 while he was in Las Vegas. He died on September 13.
The rapper was in a BMW driven by Suge Knight in a convoy of about 10 cars. They were waiting at a red light when a white Cadillac pulled up next to them and gunfire erupted. Cops say that Davis started to 'devise a plan' to kill Shakur and Marion 'Suge' Knight after they attacked his nephew at a Mike Tyson boxing match. They added that the rapper and his manager were with members of the Mob Piru gang, and knew that the shooting was a 'gang' investigation from the offset.

A Nevada grand jury indicted Davis in the killing after being seated for 'several months'. Davis was arrested while on a walk near his home last week.
He has spoken openly about being at the scene of the drive-by shooting 27 years ago, and admitted handing the murder weapon to a fellow gang member. Davis is the only one who was in the car that night who is still alive.
Last week, Mopreme Shakur, Tupac's step-brother, called the arrest of Davis 27 years after the death of the rapper 'bittersweet'.
'We have been through decades of pain,' he told CNN, 'They have known about this guy, who been running his mouth, for years.
'So why now? For us, this is not over. We want to know why, and if there were any accomplices.'
During a press conference on Friday, homicide Lt. Jason Johansson called Davis the 'leader and shot caller.'
He admitted that many facts of the case were known to cops in the 'first few months' of the investigation, but they reinvigorated their efforts in 2018.
Johansson said the police department 'knew this was likely our last time to take a run at this case to successfully solve this case and bring forth a criminal charge' after Davis made 'admissions to his involvement' of the homicide.

Police believe Davis obtained the gun that was used from a 'close associate,' but declined to give any more details, saying they would come out during the trial.
Sheriff Kevin McMahill added that the case was 'far from over', saying they are working to build a 'successful prosecution'.
District Attorney Steve Wolfson said: 'It has often been said that justice delayed is justice denied. In this case, justice has been delayed, but justice won't be denied.'
Davis wrote in his 2019 tell-all memoir 'Compton Street Legend,' that he was in the Cadillac involved in the shooting.
In the book, he said that he told authorities about his involvement in the killing in 2010, during a closed-door meeting with federal and local authorities.
'They promised they would shred the indictment and stop the grand jury if I helped them out,' he wrote.
At the time, he was 46 and facing life in prison on drug charges when he agreed to speak with the authorities.

The arrest comes two months after Vegas cops raided Davis' wife's home on July 17, looking for items 'concerning the murder of Tupac Shakur.'
Authorities seized multiple computers, a cell phone and a hard drive from the property, and a Vibe magazine featuring Shakur.
They also took several 40-caliber bullets, two 'tubs containing photographs' and a copy of Davis' memoir.
Shakur's death came as his fourth solo album, 'All Eyez on Me,' remained on the charts, with some 5 million copies sold.
Nominated six times for a Grammy Award, Shakur is largely considered one of the most influential and versatile rappers of all time.
He was feuding at the time with rap rival Biggie Smalls, also known as the Notorious B.I.G., who was fatally shot in March 1997.
At the time, both rappers were in the middle of an East Coast-West Coast rivalry that primarily defined the hip-hop scene during the mid-1990s.
Shakur accused Biggie and Sean 'Diddy' Combs, of being behind another shooting in 1994.
He was shot in a hotel lobby and was seriously injured, but survived the attack, accusing both of the rappers of being linked to the attack.

TUPAC SHAKUR Cops Search Vegas-Area Home - IN CONNECTION WITH RAPPER'S MURDER BREAKING NEWS
The home cops raided in Vegas this week in connection with the unsolved Tupacmurder belongs to the wife of a guy who says he was in the car with a man who shot and killed the late rapper.
TMZ has confirmed the address where Vegas Metro executed a search warrant Monday ... it's owned by a woman named Paula Clemons -- who's married, we've learned, to Keefe D.
Folks familiar with Tupac lore know exactly who Keefe D is -- he's a former Crip, and for years now he's been doing interviews claiming to be the uncle of the late Orlando Anderson ... who's been suspected, at least on the streets, to have been the shooter.
Orlando and his crew -- including Keefe -- were in Vegas that night ... and both were actually jumped by Tupac, Suge Knight and other Death Row affiliates at the MGM Grand. It's an altercation that was caught on surveillance video ... and many thought Orlando may have orchestrated a revenge shooting after the Tyson fight that night. FWIW, Orlando himself had denied any involvement before he was killed in a shootout himself.
As we reported, cops raided Paula's Henderson, Nevada home Tuesday. The reason the raid is significant is because, to obtain that warrant, police had to show a judge there was probable cause to believe there was evidence in the home connected to Tupac's murder.
Cops are not saying what they recovered from Paula's Henderson home.
A rep for Tupac's sister, Set, tells us the family is learning of the developments along with the rest of the world ... saying, "We are learning about the case the same way you are and have nothing to say."
There's apparently some new life in the investigation into who killed legendary rapper Tupac Shakur ... as Las Vegas cops descended on a home in connection to the murder. Detectives from the Las Vegas Metro PD served a search warrant Tuesday at a home in Henderson, Nevada ... about 20 miles away from the LV city limits. Cops were brief in the details surrounding the search, only adding it was, "part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation."
Law enforcement sources confirm to us the home was in the area of Interstate 11 and Wagon Wheel Drive but, as of now, no arrests have been made.
Pac died on September 13, 1996, after being shot multiple times just off the Las Vegas Strip.
