Just two days after rapper XXXTentacion was gunned down in South Florida authorities have arrested a suspect they believe is responsible for the tragic murder.
Dedrick D. Williams was taken into custody Wednesday evening and booked for first-degree murder. Unfortunately, Williams seems to be a career criminal — in total he has 11 felonies on his record including cocaine possession, weapons possession, domestic violence and aggravated assault with a firearm.
The news of the arrest spread rather quickly with XXX’s mother receiving a text from detectives during a vigil she was having for her slain son.
According to TMZ, “Williams was also hit with a probation violation for a previous grand theft auto charge … he is being held without bail.”
