Johseh Onfroy popularly know as XXXTentacion was fatally shot after leaving a motorcycle dealership in June. According to authorities, the rapper’s car was blocked by another vehicle when two masked gunmen approached his car, shot him and fled with a Louis Vuitton bag filled with $50,000.
Newsome was the last of the four suspects to be taken into custody following the arrests of Dedrick Williams, Michael Boatwright and Robert Allen. In July, a grand jury in Fort Lauderdale indicted all four men on charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery.
20-year-old Trayvon Newsome was taken into custody shortly before 5 p.m. on Tuesday, according to a statement posted by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office on Twitter.
The first to be caught was Dedrick Devonshay Williams, 22, of Pompano Beach. Detectives arrested him two days after XXXTentacion was killed and believe he was the driver of the SUV that blocked the rapper’s BMW.
Next was Michael Boatwright, 22, of Fort Lauderdale. He was taken into custody on July 5 on unrelated drug charges and arrested on July 10 in the homicide case. The indictment describes Boatwright as the gunman.
Robert Allen, 22, of Fort Lauderdale is was arrested July 27. He was seen on surveillance video at RIVA Motorsports at 3671 N. Dixie Highway on June 18, where XXXTentacion shopped in the minutes right before he was slain.
Newsome, of Fort Lauderdale, is a second suspected gunman. The grand jury found he possessed a gun during the robbery and killing.
Last month, a Broward County grand jury indicted the four men on charges of first-degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm, according to the sheriff’s office.
Boatwright and Newsome were the two armed suspects who confronted the rapper when he was shot and killed, the sheriff’s office said.
Boatwright discharged the weapon, killing Onfroy, according to the indictment.
Florida law stipulates all four suspects can be charged with murder due to their involvement.
