BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A 22-year-old has been arrested in connection with the murder of rapper XXXTentacion, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
The 20-year-old rapper was gunned down in broad daylight Monday afternoon outside a Deerfield Beach business.
Broward County Sheriff’s Office detectives say XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was ambushed by two people as he left an upscale motor sports dealership Monday around 4 p.m. in his electric BMW.
His attorney, David Bogenschutz, said investigators told him the 20-year-old rapper, who pronounced his stage name “Ex Ex Ex ten-ta-see-YAWN,” had visited a bank shortly before the shooting and possibly withdrew cash to buy a motorcycle.
NBC Miami is reporting that Dedrick Williams was booked into the Broward County Jail on several charges, including first degree murder in connection with the death of XXXTentacion.
Online jail recrods show Williams was arrested on one count of first degree murder, one count of violating parole and one count of operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license.
