Dedrick D. Williams is now being held in custody and the Broward County Sheriff's Department is charging the 22-year-old with first-degree murder, according to TMZ.

The 20-year-old rapper was leaving a motorsports store about 4 p.m. when two men in a dark SUV shot him, said Keyla Concepción, Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.

XXXTentacion was shot and killed in broad daylight June 18 as he sat in his BMW sports vehicle outside a Deerfield Beach, Florida motorcycle dealership.

XXXTentacion - whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy - was shot dead in Florida on Monday, but had known he was going to be a father for a couple of weeks, according to the website. It does not appear, however, that he has served time in prison for these charges and some of them were dropped. He's scheduled to appear in court next week for a probation violation hearing.

Broward Sheriff's deputies identified Williams, who had posed in photographs on Facebook and Instagram while wearing the same bright orange sandals, or footwear that was very similar, the arrest warrant said.

A suspect in Florida was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the rapper XXXTentacion's fatal shooting.


An official announcement from the Broward Sheriff's Office is yet to be made.

An arrest report says Dedrick Williams was arrested Wednesday after an officer spotted him driving a silver 2004 Honda. Bogenschutz, the Fort Lauderdale lawyer who represented the rapper in the criminal case, said XXXTentacion was moving to "resolve" the matter at the time of his death. He was awaiting trial on charges that he allegedly beat his pregnant girlfriend - an allegation he denied.

He subsequently faced further charges, including harassment and witness tampering.

"The Soundcloud rap star scored a No. 1 album earlier this year with his disc, titled "?" as well as a top-10 song, "Sad!"

However, despite his musical success, the Broward Country born-and-raised songwriter had a hard personal life and was often described as one of rap's most controversial artists. At the time of his death, he was alone, so it looks like he didn't see those plans through. It was previously suspected that Florida rappers Solider Kidd and Solider Jojo were involved in the shooting, to which they vehemently denied on Tuesday (June 19). Deputies said the men removed a bag from his auto and fled after shooting him.
