XXXTentacion’s murder investigation just intensified as the police have officially named a second person of interest.
The Broward County Sheriff’s office has revealed they are searching for 22-year-old Robert Allen who may be connected to the killing of the 20-year-old rapper over a week ago.
The police said Robert Allen was on surveillance video at the motorcycle shop in Pompano Beach where XXXTentacion was shopping before he was gunned down in his car.
It’s unclear why cops believe Allen might be connected to the murder. As we previously reported cops have already arrested Dedrick Williams for murder and said there were at least 2 other suspects.
According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Allen was already on felony probation until 2021 for 21 charges of fraudulent use of personal identification.
According to the arrest warrant for Williams, police believe he was behind the wheel of the SUV that was used to block XXXTentacion from leaving.
After reportedly blocking X’s vehicle, two more men who were inside the SUV robbed the rapper at gunpoint. Warrants for the two other suspects have reportedly been issued, although no further arrests have been made.
Williams has since pleaded not guilty to his charge of first-degree murder.
U.S. Marshals have also joined the investigation and are assisting local authorities in the hunt for the other suspects. According to agency spokesman Dave Oney, federal investigators are currently in Florida helping Broward County officers.
