News reaching NAIJ.com indicates that a 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of rapper XXXTentacion.
Dedrick D. Williams was arrested Wednesday, June 20, 2018, two days after Tentacion was shot to death in Deerfield Beach, Florida, USA Daily Mail reports.
Tentacion who was 20-years-old was leaving a motorcycle dealership when two men approached his vehicle and shot him to death.
Police think the shooting was a robbery gone wrong since the suspects made off with a Louis Vuitton bag that was in his car.
Eyewitness reports say the budding rapper was killed by two men so it is unclear if police are still looking for a second suspect.
Williams faces charges of first-degree murder, a probation violation for theft of a car motor vehicle and driving without a valid license.
Several Nigerian musicians including Davido, Burna Boy and Jidenna all took to their social media handles to mourn Tentacion’s passing.
