On Wednesday (June 20), police took 22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams into custody for his alleged role in the murder of XXXTentacion. The Pompano Beach, Fla. native has been charged with first-degree murder, probation violation for theft of a motor vehicle and driving without a valid license.
XXXTentacion was shot and killed on June 18 in Deerfield Beach, Fla., shortly after leaving RIVA Motorsports. Police say the rapper was approached by two armed suspects and at least one of them opened fire, hitting X. Following Williams' arrest, two more arrest warrants have been issued for suspects.
