Suspect in rapper's slaying held without bond

A man has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the death of up-and-coming US rapper XXXTentacion, who was gunned down in Florida on Monday, police said on Thursday.

South Florida rapper XXXTentacion was leaving a motorcycle dealership when an SUV blocked his sports vehicle and two masked gunmen jumped out and fired multiple times, killing him, according to court documents released Friday.

Dedrick Devonshay Williams, 22, has been arrested on suspicion of murder (on 20 June) in South Florida, with police suspecting that the allegation related to a botched robbery.

His real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy.

Donald Trump explains Melania’s ‘I really don’t care’ jacket
The jacket had been on sale at fashion retailer Zara for US$39, but is now sold out, according to fashion magazine marie clare. Technically, she's right that there was no hidden message - it was painted, unmistakably, on the jacket's exterior.

Court records show that Williams has previously faced charges of grand theft auto, domestic violence, cocaine possession and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Williams has done zero prison time for his crimes as some of the cases were dropped. He is expected to appear in court on the probation violation charge at a later date.

Dedrick is facing one count of first-degree murder and is being held without bond.

The news comes shortly after police arrested a 22-year-old suspect in connection with the fatal shooting. Both the CCSO and the Lee County Sheriff's Office have additional personnel in the neighborhood of the address as a precautionary measure.

The 20-year-old rapper was gunned down in broad daylight Monday afternoon outside a Deerfield Beach business.

The images of children being separated from their parents and the uproar that has followed has been startling. An image of Donald Trump staring down an immigrant girl on the front of Time magazine is causing waves.

Authorities said the rapper was ambushed by two suspects.

An arrest report says Dedrick Williams was arrested Wednesday after an officer spotted him driving a silver 2004 Honda.

The entertainer, who sported dreadlocks and facial tattoos, was a rising star. At the time of his death, he was awaiting trial after being accused of kidnapping and assaulting his pregnant partner.

However, despite his musical success, the Broward Country born-and-raised songwriter had a hard personal life and was often described as one of rap's most controversial artists. A GoFundMe page she launched to assist her with medical bills she alleges were related to the artist's abuse has raised more than $10,000 since XXXTentacion's death, and has grown to a total of $36,000, exceeding her goal of $25,000. He said Onfroy brushed aside repeated attempts to get him security.

Republicans have never been able to pass a big immigration overhaul on their own, despite talking about the issue for years. Instinctively combative and fond of chaos, Trump usually digs in on controversial policies, rather than backing down.
