Third Suspect In XXXTentacion Murder Has Been Arrested
Police have arrested a third suspect connected to the murder of 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion.
On June 18, the rapper was shot and killed as he attempted to leave a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Three days later, 22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams was arrested and booked with first-degree murder. On July 11, a second suspect, 22-year-old Michael Boatwright, was identified as one of the shooters and was charged with first-degree murder as he sat in jail for an unrelated July 5th arrest. At the time of Boatwright’s arrest, police revealed that they were still in search of an unnamed second gunman, as well as an individual by the name of Robert Allen.
Police were able to locate Robert Allen in Eastman, GA, hundreds of miles from where XXXTentacion’s murder took place. Allen was indicted on murder charges last week and is currently awaiting extradition to Broward County.
Authorities began staking out the Eastman home of Allen’s relative on Monday. Allen arrived at the home late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. Police went to the door where the relative confirmed Allen was inside. He was taken to Dodge County Jail without incident.
The fourth and final suspect, 20-year-old Trayvon Newsome, remains at large.
