A 22-year-old Florida man named Dedrick Williams was arrested by Broward County officers on Wednesday in connection to Onfroy's murder.

XXXTentacion, 20, was outside a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach when two armed men approached him in what is believed to have been a robbery, according to sheriff's investigators.

Williams is charged with first-degree murder without premeditation.

Rapper Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, who performed under the name Xxxtentacion, visits a Fort Lauderdale, Fla. radio station on May 26, 2017. Williams, pictured above, has previously been arrested for grand theft auto, cocaine possession, weapons possession, domestic violence, and aggravated assault with a firearm. It does not appear, however, that he has ever done prison time for these charges and some of them were dropped.

He is also facing a fresh parole violation stemming from a 2014 case, which will be discussed in court on Monday. A judge ordered him to be detained without bond.

Williams faced court this morning, on the charge of first-degree murder.

Deputies arrested 22-year-old Dedrick Williams, who wasn't the shooter, and are searching for the two other suspects.




The mum of chart-topping rapper XXXTentacion shared the image of the baby days after his death. His attorney said the rapper had withdrawn money before he was killed to purchase a motorcycle.

"One arrest in close proximity to the inaccurate address has already been made on the charge of loitering and prowling", said the CCSO in its Wednesday release. "His latest album "?" premiered at No. 1 when it was released in March, according to Billboard.

Sources told TMZ that the rapper, 20, knew his girlfriend was pregnant weeks ago.

A spontaneous memorial forced cops to fire rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse hundreds of rap fans who took over a central Los Angeles neighborhood on Tuesday to pay final respects to slain hip hop artist XXXTentacion.

In a statement, Onfroy's label Caroline Records said: "Everyone at Caroline is shocked to learn of the tragic death of Jahseh Onfroy, professionally known as XXXTentacion", it read.

Although Ayala had accused him, she said she was devastated by his death and lashed out on Twitter on Tuesday: "I'm broken", one of her tweets read.
