June 21 (UPI) — The Broward Sheriff’s Office arrested a suspect in the shooting death of South Florida rapper XXXTentacion.
Dedrick Williams, 22, was charged with first-degree murder and violations of probation on previous charges of grand theft and driving without a valid license, records show.
Williams was arrested in Pompano Beach about 7 p.m. Wednesday following a traffic stop.
Detectives say they are still looking for additional suspects, the sheriff’s office said.
The rapper’s mother told family and friends Wednesday night at a vigil that the sheriff’s office told her they’d made an arrest just 48 hours after the fatal shooting.
The rapper, who was born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, had just returned to his vehicle after shopping for a motorcycle in Deerfield Beach, Fla., on Monday when two unidentified men approached and shot him.
The 20-year-old was declared dead at the hospital.
Williams was scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
