A second suspect has been arrested in relation to XXXTentacion‘s murder. The Florida rapper was shot and killed as he was leaving a motorcycle dealership in Broward County on June 18.
Michael Boatwright was arrested on first-degree murder charges, the Broward Sheriff’s Office has confirmed. Boatwright was arrested on an unrelated drug charge.
Dedrick Williams, also 22, was the first suspect to be arrested in the case. He was detained last month after authorities identified him by the bright orange sandals he was wearing in CCTV footage from the motorcycle store. Investigators found images of him in similar or the same footwear on his Instagram account. Williams’ lawyer has said he will plead not guilty.
Police are still looking to talk to the person of interest Robert Allen, who they believe may have information about XXXTentacion’s murder. A warrant is also out for Allen’s arrest on charges of violating of his probation for possession of drugs and carrying a concealed firearm.
