Broward County panel formally charged Dedrick Williams, 22, Michael Boatwright, 22, Trayvon Newsome, 20, and Robert Allen, 22, court records showed. Michael Boatwright, 22, is accused of being one of the armed suspects who fired a weapon that killed XXXTentacion. Williams was arrested two days after the murder and Boatwright was taken into custody on July 5 on an unrelated drug offense. On July 10, detectives served him with an arrest warrant for first-degree murder while at the Broward Sheriff's Office Main Jail.
That $50,000 was in the Louis Vuitton bag that gunmen stole when they fatally shot XXXTentacion as he and a friend tried to drive out of Riva's parking lot, according to an arrest warrant. The arrest comes a few weeks after Dedrick D. Williams was arrested and booked for first-degree murder. Williams and Boatwright are already in police custody.
Williams' public defender, Mauricio Padilla, told CNN in a statement that he disagrees with the grand jury indictment. Two men got out of the SUV and passed Onfroy and his friend shopping in the store, the affidavit said. Then he was ambushed, as a struggle ensued he was fatally shot in his auto.
The rapper was gunned down outside a motorsports store in Florida last month.
The 20-year-old rapper was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to officials. Police are still searching for Newsome and Allen.
On Williams' cellphone, the Boatwright warrant says, police found a June 18 video of Williams "dancing with a large amount of $100 bills which he throws out on the floor in front of him" and a June 19 video of "a person sitting in the driver's seat of a vehicle holding a large amount of 100 dollar bills in both hands".
XXXTentacion was born in Plantation, Florida, and skyrocketed to fame after his song, "Look at Me", went viral on social media and SoundCloud in 2016. "He had released two full-length albums during his brief career - "17" in 2017 (via Empire) and "?" in 2018 (via Caroline/Universal Music Group) - as well as a number of mixtapes and one-off tracks.
