Four men have been indicted by a Broward County grand jury in the fatal shooting of rapper XXXTentacion.
The police announced on Thursday that they have charged the four suspects with first-degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm.
Two men have been arrested and currently in jail while two others are still at-large.
In a Broward County jail is Michael Boatwright, 22, of Fort Lauderdale, accused of being one of the armed suspects who confronted XXXTentacion. He was taken into custody on July 5 on unrelated drug charges and arrested on July 10 in the homicide case.
Also in the jail is 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.
At-large is a second suspected gunman, Trayvon Newsome, 20, of Fort Lauderdale, as well as Robert Allen, 22, of Fort Lauderdale.

The rapper had signed a deal worth $10 million with music distributor Empire to release his next album, according to the New York Times. He had released two full-length albums during his brief career — “17” in 2017 (via Empire) and “?” in 2018 (via Caroline/Universal Music Group) — as well as a number of mixtapes and one-off tracks.
The forthcoming posthumous release won’t drop before October, according to the Times, which quotes Empire founder Ghazi Shami, who says “a significant amount of material” exists.
