XXXTentacion murder: Second gunman arrested

A second suspect has been arrested in the June 18 shooting death of Florida rapper XXXTentacion.

On Wednesday, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office announced that Michael Boatwright, 22, is in police custody, along with Dedrick Williams, who was arrested June 20 and charged with first-degree murder.

In the press release, investigators said that Boatwright was actually arrested on unrelated drug charges last week and was served with an additional arrest warrant in the XXXTentacion case on Tuesday. He now faces an additional charge of first-degree murder.

They believe he was one of the two armed suspects who confronted the rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, in an apparent robbery outside RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Fla., on June 18. The 20-year-old rising star was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital later that afternoon.
