On June 18, witnesses saw two masked men flee the scene in South Florida after the murder of 20 year old rapper, XXXTentacion. On Wednesday night, 22 year old suspect, Dedrick D. Williams, was taken into custody at Broward County Sheriff’s Department where he was later booked for first-degree murder. Williams has had previous arrests for domestic violence, cocaine possession, grand theft auto, and has at least 11 recorded felonies.
A vigil was also held Wednesday night for XXXTentacion, where X’s mother had gotten notice from authorities about the arrest. During the gathering, someone mentioned a chase on the highway I-95 which could have been how authorities caught Williams. He is being held without bail.
