Police in Miami originally arrested a suspect, Dedrick Williams, but have now confirmed that they are searching for a second man in connection with the murder, which they think was a failed robbery. Williams has not yet entered a plea to the allegations.

Dedrick Devonshay Williams, 22, of Pompano Beach, was taken into custody just before 7 p.m. Wednesday, according to documents provided by the Broward County Sheriff's Office. "The investigation continues", the department said on Twitter. Detention records show he was charged with first-degree murder without premeditation, along with driving without a valid license and a probation violation for theft of a vehicle.

TMZ broke the news that the rapper's killers were at the same motorcycle shop at the same time as him, checking the scene, and then waited for XXX to exit the shop.

XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy in Plantation, was 20. He had been awaiting trial for beating his former girlfriend while she was pregnant, an episode which led to calls to shun his music.
