Incarcerated music executive and producer Suge Knight refused to testify against Duane “Keefe D” Davis in the murder investigation of hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur.

Knight, the founder of Death Row Records, insists that police and prosecutors have arrested the wrong man, and refutes the long-held belief that Davis’ late nephew, Orlando Anderson was the shooter that was responsible for killing Shakur, according to TMZ. He bluntly stated he would refuse to testify against Davis, despite being an eyewitness in the case. Knight is currently serving a 28-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter.

Knight expressed surprise over the fact that Davis was in police custody about this years-long, very high-profile murder investigation. He has famously spoken out about being inside the BMW during the infamous 1996 shooting in Las Vegas that took the life of Shakur, and left him injured by gunfire, according to TMZ.

Knight maintained that no matter what Davis may have said, alluded to, or confessed to, he will not say a single bad word about the man, and will certainly not be incriminating him in this crime.

He made it clear that prosecutors would not be able to rely on him to take the stand during Davis’ murder trial, which severely impedes the progress in this case.

There were a total of 6 people involved in the shooting. Four of them were in the shooter’s car. Suge and Davis are the only survivors currently remaining. (RELATED: Tupac Shakur Gets Star On Hollywood Hall Of Fame)

Police believe Davis was in on the murder of Shakur and supplied the gun that was used in his murder.

Davis has previously been outspoken about his alleged involvement in Tupac’s murder by speaking with police and writing and releasing a memoir, both of which triggered the recent progress in this case, according to TMZ.
