Authorities note that the late rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, was shot during an attempted robbery while leaving a Deerfield Beach motorcycle dealership on the afternoon of June 18. The four accused men made off with the rapper’s Louis Vuitton bag, which contained $50,000 USD in cash, kicking off a statewide manhunt.
Two men, Dedrick Devonshay Williams, 22, and Michael Boatwright, 22, were arrested by police for suspected involvement in the shooting. Both were present for the grand jury’s decision of first-degree murder and attempted robbery. The indictment also named Trayvon Newsome, 20, and Robert Allen, 22, who are currently still on the run. The Broward Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in locating them.
The unanimous decision is the latest development in the shocking case which saw the untimely death of one of the music industry’s most polarizing figures. Additionally, the indictment comes shortly after XXXTentacion’s mother posted a heartfelt to her son vowing to keep his legacy going.
