2nd man arrested for murder of rapper XXXTentacion

XXXTentacion

Authorities have arrested a second suspect in last month's fatal shooting of South Florida rapper XXXTentacion.

On Wednesday, the Broward County Sheriff's Office announced that they arrested 22-year-old Michael Boatwright.

Boatright was picked up by police on an unrelated drug charge last week, and was charged with first degree murder on Tuesday.

Following his death, XXXTentacions music surged on the Billboard Hot 100, with multiple songs re-entering the charts after falling off.

Another suspect Dedrick Williams, 22, was charged last month with first-degree murder and is now in police custody. Investigators want to find out what he knows about the murder.

Charles Oakley arrested in Las Vegas after allegedly cheating at casino
It's not known what game Oakley was playing at The Cosmopolitan, but TMZ reported the incident was captured on surveillance video. Dolan suggested Oakley was drunk and heckling him, and Oakley was arrested for assault, harassment and trespassing.

Allen is also wanted in Broward County on a felony warrant for violation of probation for possession of PVP (flakka) and carrying a concealed firearm, authorities said. Also charged in the killing is 22-year-old Dedrick Williams.

Onfroy was leaving the motorcycle shop when he was approached by two gunmen who then opened fire in an apparent robbery attempt, authorities had said. The arrest warrant for Williams explains the two shooters got back into a dark-colored SUV, so they're looking for the driver.

The rapper was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, officials said.

It's not clear why a murder charge was filed against Williams. He had been recently released from house arrest while he awaited trial on battery and harassment charges - all of which he denied. Since early reports claimed that the suspects were seen with a red mask, the internet thought it had found the suspects. The Broward County Sheriff's Office claims that Boatwright was one of two men who approached XXXTentacion while he was in his auto in an attempt to rob him.
