Authorities claimed that Davis was the mastermind behind the shooting and supplied the gun that fired the fatal gunshots. Shortly before the murder, Tupac's crew had a violent run-in with Anderson inside the MGM Grand following a Mike Tyson boxing match.

Knight refused to say who fired the gun but insisted it was not Anderson. He also suggested that Davis should not take the fall for the murder. While Knight remained tight-lipped about the shooting, Davis has been openly blabbing about the fateful evening for years.

As reported, Davis bragged about the details surrounding Tupac's murder in his self-published book, Compton Street Legend, which police said played a key role in the renewed investigation.
