Suspect arrested in rapper XXXTentacion murder case

A 22-year-old has been arrested in connection with the shooting of rising rap star XXXTentacion in Florida.

The Broward Sheriff's Office said in a statement that Dedrick Devonshay Williams of Pompano Beach was arrested and charged with murder Wednesday evening in connection with XXXTentacion's death.

The up-and-coming US rapper, whose given name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was gunned down in Deerfield Beach, Florida on Monday after leaving an upscale motorcycle dealership. 

It was a violent end to a brief music career that was fraught with controversy. The 20-year-old musician was facing charges of domestic violence at the time of his murder.
