Dedrick D. Williams was taken into custody Wednesday, two days after the artist, whose birth name was Jahseh Onfroy, was gunned down in South Florida.
Charges for Williams, 22, include first-degree murder, a probation violation for theft of a car motor vehicle and driving without a valid license. They then allegedly fled in an SUV.
The arrest was confirmed to the Daily News by Broward County Sheriff’s Office Captain Robert Schakenberg.
XXXTentacion, 20, was outside a motorsports store in the Miami area’s Deerfield Beach when two armed men approached him in what is believed to have been a robbery, according to sheriff’s investigators.
After the arrest it was not clear if police were still looking for another suspect. But it is clear that the infamous Soldier Kidd and Soldier JoJo who were blamed by many on social media had nothing to do with the death of XXXTentacion.
