Less than two days after XXXTentacion was shot and killed in Florida, suspect Dedrick D. Williams was taken into custody under charges of first-degree murder and driving without a valid license. At the time, police made it clear that there were still multiple suspects who had not yet been taken into custody.
On June 27, the Broward Sheriff’s Office identified another person of interest named Robert Allen, who was seen at the motorcycle shop where XXXTentacion was shot, shortly before the murder took place.

Tuesday afternoon, the sheriff’s office revealed that a warrant for Allen’s arrest was issued on June 28. The warrant is not related to XXXTentacion’s homicide investigation. Allen was reportedly on probation for possessing PVP and carrying a concealed firearm, but he owes the state of Florida over $3,000 and has allegedly failed to make an effort to find a job.
Dedrick Williams is currently accused of being the driver of the SUV that blocked X into a parking lot at the motorcycle dealership, before two masked gunmen jumped out of the vehicle and shot the rapper. Detectives reportedly don’t believe Williams fired a gun during the killing, and they are still in pursuit of the other two suspects. U.S. Marshals have joined the search for the other two men.
