An arrest is expected soon in the murder of rapper Tupac Shakur, according to KTNV in Las Vegas.

The information comes from an anonymous source, and Las Vegas police have not yet confirmed any new activity on the cold case.
Shakur was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1996, and an arrest was never made in the case.

Former gang member Duane Keith Davis recently confessed in a Netflix documentary that he was in the car when passenger Orlando Anderson, who has always denied involvement, shot Shakur, allegedly as revenge for a beating. Shakur was rushed to a nearby hospital but died of his wounds later.

Retired senior homicide detective Phil Ramos said that it was common knowledge who was responsible for the murder, and that Anderson was named a potential suspect before the case stalled.

"It's kind of a given gang members don't talk to cops, especially in murder cases," Ramos said. "That's what happened on this case."

Davis, who said he released the information because he has cancer, told police officers a different story when he was initially questioned, Ramos said. Detectives will now have to corroborate everything Davis said in the documentary, Ramos said, given Davis's past as a gang member
