Late American Rapper XXXTentaction’s mum has claimed someone has been arrested after he was shot dead in a terrifying daylight attack.
The rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was killed on Monday as two masked men gunned him down while he was sitting in his car in Florida.
A video has now surfaced online, which reportedly shows the star’s mother telling a crowd of people that someone has been arrested.
The 20-year-old had just left a motorcycle dealership when he was approached by the masked assailants.
Police immediately launched a manhunt, telling people they were hunting for “black males wearing hoodies” and said that the “shooter was wearing a red mask”.
Representatives from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office posted about the shooting on Twitter.
They said in a statement;
“Investigators have confirmed that the adult male victim is Jahseh Onfroy, aka, rapper XXXTentacion, of Parkland, FL.
“BSO homicide detectives said the 20-year-old victim was leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach shortly before 4pm when he was approached by two armed suspects.
“At least one of the suspects fire a gun striking Onfroy. Both of the suspects fled in a dark-color SUV. Investigators say it appears to be a possible robbery.
“Onfroy was transported to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead.”
They asked anyone with information to contact them.
