Authorities believe they have identified the two gunmen and two accessories to the crime
A grand jury has indicted four suspects in the XXXTentacion murder case.
The rapper was shot dead in Broward County, Florida on June 18 as he was leaving a motorcycle dealership. He was 20 years old.
Michael Boatwright, who was arrested earlier this month, and Trayvon Newsome have been named as the men the Broward County Sheriff’s Office believe pulled the trigger on XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, as Florida’s Sun Sentinel reports.
Dedrick Williams and Robert Allen were indicted as accessories to the crime, having been alleged to have blocked the rapper from leaving the motorcycle store’s car park with their SUV. Williams was arrested shortly after Onfroy’s death, while Allen is still at large.
The four men face first-degree murder charges along with charges of armed robbery with a firearm. Police are offering a reward of $3,000 (£2,300) for details leading to the arrest of Allen or Newsome, while a hotline has been set up for people to share tips anonymously.
Meanwhile, a new eight-piece collection of “memorial merch” remembering Onfroy has been released. The star’s team have explained the rise of bootleggers selling unofficial merchandise using his likeness was the inspiration behind the move.
“We wanted to give fans the ability to own and wear a piece of Jah’s artistry while also supporting his legacy,” they explained. The range can be ordered online now.
