They also clarified why Keefe D is charged with murder while he's not the individual believed to have pulled the trigger on 2Pac. One official explained that in Nevada, along with most states, one can be charged with a crime even if they didn't commit it directly, for aiding or abetting. Keefe D was also charged with intent to promote, further, or assist a criminal gang.
"For 27 years the family of Tupac Shakur has been waiting for justice," Sheriff Kevin McMahill also explained at a press conference today. "While I know there's been many people who did not believe that the murder of Tupac Shakur was important to this police department, I'm here to tell you that is simply not the case."
