Suspected Gunman in XXXTentacion’s Murder Case Arrested

One of the suspected gunmen in the murder of XXXTentacion has been arrested.

According to the Broward Sherriff’s Office today (July 11), 22-year-old Michael Boatwright was arrested on July 5 for unrelated drug charges including possession and intent to sell cocaine and possession of Pyrrolidinopentiophenone (known on the streets as flakka). While in jail, authorities served Boatwright on July 10 with an arrest warrant for first-degree murder.

Boatwright is now the second person to be arrested in connection to the murder of XXXTentacion, after 22-year-old Dedrick Williams was apprehended on June 21. Williams was charged with first-degree murder and is suspected of being the getaway driver for the two gunmen who shot dead XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Onfroy, in broad daylight as he left RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield, Fla. on June 20.

The first degree charge describes the murder as premeditated, meaning that it was committed with some planning and “lying in wait,” or holding off until a certain moment.
