Suspect Arrested in Murder of XXXTentacion

  /  06.21.2018

A 22-year-old man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of XXXTentacion, the Broward Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday morning.

According to CNN, authorities arrested Dedrick Devonshay Williams of Pompano Beach, Fla. on Wednesday evening on charges including first-degree murder as well as grand theft of a motor vehicle and operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license.

His inmate record describes the charge as “murder dangerous depraved without premeditation.” First-degree murder is premeditated in many states but Florida’s law allows suspects to be charged with the crime if they commit a murder while perpetrating another felony, or if the murder is the result of dealing drugs.

At the time of his arrest, Williams was on probation until 2021 for grand theft motor vehicle, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.

XXXTentacion was shot and killed Monday during an apparent robbery in Broward County, Florida. The 20-year-old rapper was leaving a motorsports store when two men in a dark SUV opened fire.

Following his death, his music has soared in sales. His song “SAD!” was streamed 10.4 million times on Spotify on June 19, breaking the single-day streaming record that was previously held by Taylor Swift.
