According to reports, the police arrested a suspect in the murder of the rapper and producer, XXXTentacion. They charged the suspect with first-degree murder for shooting the 20-year-old to death.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed they had detained Dedrick Devonshay Williams. The police department’s website claimed they had charged Williams with first-degree murder, a probation violation, and operating without a valid driver’s license.
The 22-year-old is currently sitting in the police station without bond. As it was previously reported, two suspects shot XXXTentacion in South Florida, on the 18th of June while he was shopping for a motorcycle.
At the time of his death, the artist was on “modified house arrest” in the months leading up to his sentencing for allegedly hitting his pregnant girlfriend. The police charged him with aggravated battery, domestic battery, strangulation, and false imprisonment.
In a report from The Associated Press, the outlet states that investigators believe suspects ambushed him at the store. Moreover, the lawyer for the musician said he probably was withdrawing money from a bank to buy a motorcycle.
In an Instagram Live video in December, he said that if “worst comes to worst,” and he died a tragic death, he would at least like to know that his fans were able to take away a positive message from his passing.
In the same video, XXXTentacion said that as long as he manages to make “five million kids happy,” and is able to implement some kind of positive message or meaning in their lives, then everything will be ok.
The rapper said he didn’t “give a f*ck” either way, because it is all about the message and getting it out to his fans. He added, “So, I just wanted to say I appreciate and love all of you, and I believe in you all.”
