Rapper XXXTentacion was shot and killed in his vehicle on Monday in Deerfield, FL. A suspect in that murder has now been arrested, according to BBC.
The suspect is 22-year-old Dedrick D Williams, who faces a charge of first-degree murder.
XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was sitting in his car having left a motorcycle dealership on Monday afternoon. Witnesses saw a dark-coloured SUV pull up alongside Onfroy’s vehicle before at least one of them opened fire, hitting and killing Onfroy.
