Las Vegas police reportedly recovered several .40 caliber bullets while executing a search warrant on Duane â€œKeefe Dâ€ Davisâ€™ home in Henderson, Nevada, last week. The search was conducted for a renewed investigation into the murder of 2Pac in 1996. Davis is the uncle of â€˜Pacâ€™s alleged killer Orlando Anderson.
According to the Daily Mirror, a Vegas police source says the bullets will undergo forensic testing â€œto determine if they have any link to the bullets found in 2Pacâ€™s body or on the scene of the homicide.â€ Detectives have kept clothing and bullets from the scene of the infamous shooting for over 25 years.

â€œMicrofibers or residues from the weapon or the bullet could prove to be a link,â€ the source added. â€œThere is no information yet on the history of the bullets, how old they are, or their significance. And it will take some time to assess how the bullets play a role in this case.â€
The source went on to confirm that police executed the search warrant because â€œinvestigators feel they can assemble enough information that could lead to an arrest or indictment.â€ Despite the possibility, they admitted, â€œit is a long shot that the bullets will be the ones from 1996.â€ In addition to the bullets, police seized computers, hard drives, and various photos from the 1990s of possible suspects from Keefe Dâ€™s home. Investigators will eventually present their findings to a Las Vegas grand jury to determine whether to pursue an indictment.
As for Andersonâ€™s role in Pacâ€™s death, the accused killer was himself murdered just two years later in 1998. On the night of Pacâ€™s death, Anderson famously got into a fight with him in the lobby of the MGM Grand following the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing fight. Pac was shot and killed later that night.
