Florida man charged with murder in XXXTentacion’s killing, police say

Dedrick D. Williams

Since his tragic passing, the Broward County Sheriff's Department have been investigating the crime, and on June 21, they arrested a 22-year-old man for XXX's murder.

Dedrick Devonshay Williams, 22, was taken into custody Wednesday evening, according to the Broward County, Florida Sheriff's Office.

The Florida-born rapper was leaving a Deerfield Beach motorsports dealership at around 4 p.m. when two armed men approached him and opened fire in an apparent robbery attempt, police said. It was not immediately clear if police were looking for a second suspect.

After Williams' arrest, Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said homicide detectives were seeking additional suspects.

He subsequently faced further charges, including harassment and witness tampering.

The alleged shooter was additionally charged with a probation violation for an earlier grand theft auto charge and is being held without bail. The judge signed off on the warrants, but no arrests have been made at this time.

- Williams has ties to the rap scene in Broward County.

Several Injured After Reports Of "Minor Explosion" At Southgate Tube Station
Police were called to the station over reports of an explosion and people running a little after 7 p.m. on Tuesday evening. Paramedics have treated three people at the scene and two were taken to hospital for their injuries.

He was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 20-year-old Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy from Pompano Beach, better known as rapper XXXTentacion.

His mother, Cleopatra Bernard, has revealed that the late rapper was expecting a baby with his girlfriend, something he reportedly knew about weeks ago.

However, despite his musical success, the Broward Country born-and-raised songwriter had a hard personal life and was often described as one of rap's most controversial artists.

She continued: "THEY BURNED THE S**T I LEFT THEY BURNED WHAT I BROUGHT FOR HIM I'M SO MAD LIKE I'M SCREAMING", she added. He had been awaiting trial for beating his former girlfriend while she was pregnant, an episode which led to calls to shun his music. He said he used violence so she would engage with him.

As seen in videos shot at the memorial, and shared to social media by hundreds who came together in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles, people were seen riding on the tops of moving vehicles and forming mosh pits in the middle of the huge crowd.

He is now being helped at Broward County Sheriff's department.
