Suspect arrested in death of rapper XXXTentacion in Florida

Dedrick Devonshay Williams was taken into custody Wednesday (June 20) in Pompano Beach, Fla., a neighboring city south of the Deerfield Beach, where the "Look At Me" rapper was murdered.

Authorities have arrested a suspect in the killing of rapper XXXTentacion, who died Monday after being shot while he sat inside his SUV outside of a motorcycle dealership.

Convicted vehicle thief Dedrick Williams was arrested Wednesday night as a suspect in Monday's murder of rapper XXXTentacion outside a Pompano Beach motorcycle shop, the Broward Sheriff's Office announced.

Because Williams' violated his probation by driving without a valid license, his first court appearance Monday (June 26) will exclusively focus on that rather than the first-degree murder charge.

In a video posted to social media Thursday, Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy said he will be mourning XXXTentacion's death for seven days before celebrating his son's life.

One of the suspects in XXXTentacion's tragic shooting case is now in police custody on a first-degree murder charge.

No motive has been formally released for the murder, though police earlier made statements suggesting that it was a robbery.

The country's state-run media characterized the vaguely worded agreement with Trump as setting in motion a "step-by-step" process. North Korean officials have indicated in the past that they have the remains of as many as 200 US troops, the Pentagon said.

Williams has a long list of legal issues in his past. His short career was marred by allegations of extreme domestic abuse and violence, and he was facing charges at the time of his death.

The 20-year-old Plantation native was known as a rising star of the SoundCloud underground rap movement.

In a recent interview with the Miami New Times, XXXTentacion described his upbringing, which included seeing his mother infrequently and being raised by friends, family and baby-sitters.

"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. He was scheduled to make an initial court appearance on Thursday afternoon, according to Broward County prosecutors.
