A Second Suspect In The Murder Of XXXTentacion Has Been Arrested

Suspected gunman in XXXTentacion's murder arrested in Florida

XXXTentacion was fatally shot on June 18

A second suspect has been arrested over the death of Florida rapper XXXTentacion, whose fame was quickly rising when he was gunned down last month, authorities said yesterday.

The Broward Sheriff's Office says in a news release Wednesday that 22-year-old Michael Boatright is facing first-degree murder charges in the killing. The arrest warrant for Williams explains the two shooters got back into a dark-colored SUV, so they're looking for the driver.

Onfroy was taken to Broward Health North in Deerfield Beach, where he was pronounced dead.

Dedrick Devonshay Williams, who is also 22, was allegedly the other man. Williams was arrested the same week as the murder and charged with first-degree murder. Police arrested Williams two days after Onfroy's murder; he has been charged with first-degree murder, a probation violation for theft of a vehicle, and driving without a valid license.

However, the 23-time Grand Slam champion is considered by many - including herself - as the woman to beat at these championships. Stephens, who was also the runner-up at the French Open last month, was downed 6-1 6-3 by the unseeded Croatian.

As previously reported, Boatwright is the third suspect identified in X's murder. It is now clear that Boatwright is one of those suspects, although it's still unclear if police think Allen is one of those suspects as well.

The sheriff's department said it was still searching for another suspect, Robert Allen, who is also 22. The motive was believed to be robbery. Numerous photos that they shared, including the one above, showed the two rappers with a red mask. "[Detectives] want to find out what he knows about the murder", Broward Sheriff's Office wrote via its Facebook page when it announced Allen was a person of interest.

Shortly after XXXTentacion was shot, people in the area filmed his lifeless body.
