Suspect in XXXTentacion murder has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder

A 22-year-old man has been detained.

Earlier this week — on June 18, to be exact — XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Onfroy, was shot and killed inside his car after leaving a motorcycle shop in Deerfield, Florida. Authorities have now arrested a suspect in connection to the murder. As the Broward Sheriff's Office have confirmed, 22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams has been taken into custody, and faces charges of first-degree murder, a probation violation for theft of a car motor vehicle, and driving without a valid license. He was detained after a car chase, according to TMZ. Williams is currently being held without bail. Two other arrest warrants have also been issued for two other suspects.
