A second person has been arrested in the June shooting of XXXTentacion, authorities in Florida announced Wednesday.
Michael Boatright, 22, has been charged with first-degree murder charges in the killing that took place in Deerfield Beach, Florida in front of RIVA motorcycle store. Boatwright was initially arrested last week on an unrelated drug charge. Authorities maintain that robbery was the motive in the killing of the 20-year-old whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy.
One suspect named Dedrick Williams, was already charged with first-degree murder after he was arrested on June 28th. His lawyer has said he will plead not guilty. Detectives still want to talk with a third man named Robert Allen, who is described as a “person of interest” in the case.
Two weeks ago, it was reported that the alleged killers arrived in a dark-colored SUV and walked past the rapper inside the bike store to purchase face masks and left shortly after.
