“A 22-year-old suspect has been arrested and charged with murder days after the killing of rising rap star XXXTentacion, who was fatally shot in his luxury BMW electric car as he left an upscale motorcycle dealership in Florida,” the AP reports. “Dedrick Devonshay Williams of Pompano Beach was arrested shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday after a traffic stop, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said a statement Thursday.”

Authorities said the 20-year-old rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was ambushed by two suspects.

“They did not give a motive in announcing Williams’ arrest but had previously said the shooting was an apparent robbery attempt,” the report notes. “After Williams’ arrest, Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said homicide detectives also were seeking additional suspects.”
