XXXTentacion Shooting Suspect Arrested Following Rapper's Death

XXXTentacion Shooting Suspect Arrested Following Rapper's Death

Police have arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of young rapper XXXTentacion.

As the New York Daily News reports, 22 year-old Dedrick D. Williams was arrested on Wednesday by the Broward County Sheriff's Department, booked for first-degree murder and driving without a license.

Rapper XXXTentacion was shot and killed during an apparent robbery Monday in Broward County, Florida, police said. The controversial rapper was leaving a motorcycle dealership when a gunman suddenly went up to his auto and shot him.

He was awaiting trial on those charges at the time of his murder.

The rapper, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, has been confirmed dead by the local Broward Sheriff office.

The rapper, whose stage name is pronounced "Ex Ex Ex ten-ta-see-YAWN", was shot while in his BMW sports vehicle.

Authorities arrested Dedrick Williams of Pompano Beach on Wednesday evening and charged him with first-degree murder. It does not appear, however, that he has served time in prison for these charges and some of them were dropped.

Trump is also looking at new tariffs on auto imports, opening a new front in the trade war. It had previously registered the move with the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Meanwhile an elderly couple faced death threats following social media rumours falsely linking them to the rapper's death.

Onfroy was reportedly shot while leaving the parking lot of a shop in Deerfield Beach on Monday. In addition to eyewitness accounts, cops relied on surveillance videos during the probe, TMZ reported.

Though Williams' inmate record describes the charge as "murder unsafe depraved (without) premeditation", the arrest warrant accused Williams of killing the rapper "from a premeditated design".

Neighbors, many of whom did not want to be quoted, said they knew Williams as a tattoo artist.

Onfroy was leaving the vehicle dealership at around 4pm local time when two men approached him, officials say. The men then allegedly fled in a dark colored SUV.

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. His mother rarely visited Onfroy, causing him to use violence to engage with her.
