The shooting of rapper XXXTentacion has been aired to the public for the first time during a court hearing in Broward County, Florida. It was captured on surveillance video.
The footage shows two men following the 20-year-old rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, walking into RIVA Motorsport in Deerfield.
Later, XXXTentacion’s BMW is stopped by two assailants, suspected to be Michael Boatwright and Trayvon Newsome, who wield guns as they try to rob him of a Louis Vuitton bag.
The rapper struggled with Boatwright and Newsome before they allegedly shot him point-blank. One of the suspects entered the passenger side of XXXTentacion’s car before fleeing. They left with the bag and $50,000 cash.
Prosecutors played the video during a discovery and bail hearing for Robert Allen, who is one of four suspects charged with the June murder of the rapper. The four men are Boatwright, Newsome, Dedrick Williams, and Allen.
