Murder suspect arrested in investigation into death of rapper XXXTentacion

Suspect arrested in shooting death of rapper XXXTentacion

Authorities in Florida said Thursday that an arrest has been made in the shooting death of rapper XXXTentacion.

The rap world received a major shock on June 18 at around 5:40 p.m. ET when XXXTentacion was pronounced dead in the Miami suburb of Deerfield Beach.

XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was shot and killed in Deerfield Beach, Florida, on Monday when two armed suspects approached his vehicle as he was leaving RIVA Motorsports.

Homicide detectives arrested Pompano Beach resident Dedrick Devonshay Williams, 22, shortly before 7 pm on Wednesday evening.

According to the Associated Press, Williams, 22, remains in Broward County jail, held without bail. "More details soon", the first tweet read, before a further clarification: "Posted on behalf of his mother, for any wondering". In many states, first-degree murder is premeditated, but Florida's law allows suspects to be charged with the crime if they commit a murder while perpetrating another felony, or if the murder is the result of dealing drugs.

The rapper was shot Monday in his sports auto as he left an upscale motor sports dealership. Reports have said there are arrest warrants for two others in the case. The Broward Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to an email seeking clarification on the charges.

No motive was announced in Williams' arrest but police have previously said the shooting was an apparent robbery attempt.

But at the same time as his career took off, the musician was in jail, after being arrested on charges including aggravated battery of a pregnant victim and false imprisonment.

"She is stunned, devastated, somewhat rudderless at this point, she's a very young mother, 36 or 37, and one of the nicest ladies you'd ever meet", Bogenschutz said.

The sonogram was taken on April 23 when XXXTentacion's girlfriend was eight weeks along, meaning the due date is around mid-November. "I was glad I didn't stay next to him because there was all that 4-wheeler noise going on down there".

A viral video of the late rapper seemingly predicting his own death has been shared across social media in which he says the following.
