22-Year-Old Man Arrested In Connection With XXXTentacion’s Murder
Police in South Florida have arrested a man suspected of fatally shooting XXXTentaction, the Daily News and TMZ reports.
22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams was detained on Wednesday by Broward County officials who confirmed he has been booked on several charges, including first degree murder, a probation violation for theft of a car, and driving without a valid license.
‘More details and his warrant will be released later today,’ the sheriff’s office said in the statement.
XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was leaving motorcycle dealership in his BMW sports car on Monday when he was approached by two men who shot him to death.
It is believed that the murder was a robbery-gone-wrong, since the two men made off with a Louis Vuitton bag. Onfroy’s lawyer also said his client had withdrawn a large sum before visiting the dealership, possibly to purchase a motorcyle.
