A Second Suspect In The Murder Of XXXTentacion Has Been Arrested

2nd suspect arrested in rapper XXXTentacion's murder

A second suspect has been arrested in the killing of controversial rapper XXXTentacion, who was shot and killed near a motorcycle dealership on June 18.

Michael Boatwright, a 22-year-old Broward resident, was arrested on July 5 on marijuana possession and probation-violation charges. However, on Tuesday, detectives served him with a warrant for first-degree murder. "[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. At least one of the men opened fire before fleeing the scene.

The rapper was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, officials said.

The latest arrest comes after another suspect, Dedrick D. Williams, 22, was arrested and charged with first degree murder on 20 June. Authorities on Wednesday said they are still seeking the second gunman, but offered no further details on that individual.

XXXTentacion's hit "Sad", rose to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts following his death.

Williams was allegedly driving an SUV that cut off the rapper's BMW as he attempted to leave the parking lot of the motorsports store, according to Williams' arrest warrant.

Investigators say Mr Boatwright had been detained in jail since his earlier arrest on unrelated drug charges. He had been recently released from house arrest while he awaited trial on battery and harassment charges - all of which he denied.

If you have any information on this shooting, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Many fans were quick to identify the person in the vehicle as XXX, but police didn't confirm that the victim was the rapper until a few hours later.
