Boatwright and Dedrick Williams, both 22, already are in Broward County jail on charges related to this incident and others.

Two masks similar to the one Williams purchased at the motorsports store before the murder and ammunition similar to the cases found at the crime scene were later recovered from a vehicle belonging to Boatwright's relative, according to the affidavit.

Williams and Boatwright have been arrested, while Newsome and Allen remain at large.

A grand jury in Broward County, Fla., indicted four men in the fatal shooting of rapper XXXTentacion on Thursday, according to News 10 in Miami.

Williams' babysitter told police when Williams came home on June 18, Williams paid him with a single $100 bill.

Messages sent to attorneys for Boatwright and Williams weren't immediately returned. Williams was arrested two days after the murder and Boatwright was taken into custody on July 5 on an unrelated drug offense. Since then, police officials were searching for Newsome and Allen.

Williams later told police he was with others at the motorcycle shop but did not know in advance they meant to rob the rapper.

Williams was seen in the store on surveillance cameras while XXXTentacion was shopping, court records show. Authorities say Williams drove the SUV.

Several days after the killing, police discovered Boatwright searched "Accessory to Murder", on his phone, as well as Onfroy's last name, the affidavit said. Also, the warrant says Allen was with Boatwright and Tony Robinson, Williams' close friend, when Robinson rented the 2017 Dodge Journey detectives say blocked XXXTentacion's BMW as he left Riva's parking lot.

Police said the talented youngster - real name Jahseh Onfroy - had been carrying a bag with $50,000 (£38,185) in cash, which was stolen.

Police were initially looking for two men in connection with the shooting, a sheriff's spokesperson said at the time, but since launching the investigation, police made two arrests and announced they were seeking a second unidentified gunman, as well as Allen, who was initially named as a person of interest.
