These incidents began on September 7, 1996 with the gang-related shooting of rapper Tupac Shakur and Marion "Suge" Knight of "Death Row Records" in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Death Row Records" is connected with the "MOB PIRU" gang in Compton and the "BOUNTY HUNTERS" gang in Los Angeles.

Informants have told police that "SOUTHSIDE CRIPS" were responsible for the Las Vegas shooting. Your affiant has personal knowledge that some "SOUTHSIDE CRIPS" members reside in Las Vegas. There is also an ongoing feud between Tupac Shakur and the "blood" related "Death Row Records" which employed "SOUTHSIDE CRIPS" gang members as security.

There were no weapons or contraband located. The vehicle was not the one used in the shooting. David Keith's driver's history revealed a Las Vegas address of 2109 Haveling Street.
On September 10, 1996, Gary Williams, (who is the brother of former "Death Row Record's" security person George Williams) was shot in a driveby shooting at Pine and Bradfield. The suspect was described as a male black driving a 1986-87 red Nissan, possibly from the "SOUTHSIDE CRIP" gang (Case #9635691).
On September 12, 1996, approximately 12.00 hours, your Affiant was contacted by los Angeles Country Sheriffs (Century Station's Operations Save Street) Deputy Paul Fournier. Deputy Fournier said that he spoke with an informant, who told him that "Keefee D's" nephew shot Tupac Shakur. The suspect is a "SOUTHSIDE CRIP", and the informant is with the "LEUDERS PARK PIRU", "MOB PIRU", "ELM LANE PIRU", and DEATH ROW RECORDS fraction.
On September 12, 1996, approximately 14.00 hours, I made contact with Sergant Baker's second CRI. The CRI confirmed Orlando Anderson was "Keefee D's" (Keith Davis') nephew.
On September 12, 1996, approximately 16.30 hours, Officer E. Aquirre, Deputy Fournier, and your Affiant met with the LASO Deputy's informant (referenced ac CRI #3). Your Affiant asked CRI #3 to provide information on our recent shootings. The CRI stated that right now in Compton, the "SOUTHSIDE CRIPS" are aligning with the "NEIGHBORHOOD CRIS", "KELLY PARK CRIPS", and "ATLANTIC DRIVE CRIPS" against "MOB PIRUS", "LEUDER PARK PIRUS", and "ELM LANE PIRUS". These alliances are a diredt result of the Las Vegas shooting of Tupac Shakur and Marion "Suge" Knight. The CRI stated that the "Piru" groups are aligned with "Death Row Records". Approximately 1-1/2 to 2 months ago, "Death Row Records'" affiliate Travon Lane (aka Tray) was in the "Foot Locker Store" in the Lakewood Mall, with other "MOB PIRUS", Kevin Woods aka "K.W." and Maurice Combs aka "Lil Mo".

On September 7, 1996, after the "Mike Tyson Fight" at the MGM Hotel in Las Vegas, there was a large entourage of "Death Row Records" people and some "Blood" gang members. The entourage had seen several "SOUTHSIDE CRIP" people at the fight. The "Death Row Records" people observed a "SOUTHSIDE CRIP" gang member alone in the lobby. "Tray" recognized the "SOUTHSIDE CRIP" member to be one of the people who took his "Death Row" chain at lakewood Mall and pointed him out to Tupac Shakur (who had a fresh "MOB" tatto on his arm). Shakur confronted the "SOUTHSIDE CRIP" member, saying "you from the South?" and beguan fighting him. Several of the other bloods also began striking the "SOUTHSIDE CRIP". The altercation was broken up by security, and the "Death Row Records'" poeple left. The "Death Row Records'" people were caravaning in several vehicles enroute the "662 Club". "Suge" and Tupac were in the first vehicle. Some of their people in the vehicles that followed were "Buntry" (Alton MacDonald), "Neckbone" (Roger Williams), "Hen Dog" (Henry Smith), "Lil Wack 2" (Allen Jordan), "Tray" (Travon Lane)--all "MOB PIRUS"--and Tupac's security person, Frank. The entourage stopped for a red light at Flamingo and Las Vegas Boulevard, when a Cadillac pulled up next to Tupac and "Suge". There were at least two people in the Cadillac. The passenger got out "talking shit" and pulled a gun and began shooting, hitting Tupac and "Suge". The suspects in the Cadillac left and were thought to be caught by the police, by the "Death Row Records" personnel. The "PIRU" and "Death Row Records" people met at the "662 Club" (The number 662 coincide with letters on the telephone to spell MOB) after the shooting. "Timmy-Ru" (Tim MacDonald), "Mob James" (James MacDonald), "Tray". and others were present. "Tray" was telling everyone that the shooter was the same person they jumped at the "MGM". "Tray" said that he knew the person ans that the shooter was "Keffee D's" (Keith Davis) nephew from "SOUTHSIDE CRIPS".

We viewed a videotape of the assault--on a male Black, who I recognized to be Orlando Anderson aka "Baby Lane"--by Tupac Shakur, Marion "Suge" Knight, and other "Death Row Records" people. The tape was of the events after the Mike Thyson Fight at the "MGM" Hotel.

Las Vegas Police Department said that they had received a few more calls saying that Terrence Brown aka "T-Brown" a "SOUTSIDE CRIP" and Davion Brooks were in the car with "Baby Lane". Las Vegas Police Department had a Las Vegas adress on Davion Brooks. (The address was subsequently checked by Las Vegas Police Department. Brooks had moved the first week of September 1996.
