XXXTentacion death: Fourth suspect turns himself in to face murder charge

The fourth and final suspect accused of shooting and killing 20-year-old rapper Jahseh Onfroy, also known by his stage name XXXTentacion, has turned himself in to authorities, Broward County sheriff’s deputies said Wednesday.

Trayvon Newsome, 20, surrendered to authorities Tuesday at his lawyer’s office in Fort Lauderdale, according to deputies.

Newsome is one of four men charged with first-degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm in connection with Onfroy’s June 18 death. Newsome, 22-year-old Dedrick Devonshay Williams, 22-year-old Michael Boatwright and 22-year-old Robert Allen were indicted July 18 by a Broward County grand jury.

Onfroy, 20, was shot and killed in broad daylight on June 18 in an apparent robbery attempt as he was leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, according to deputies. Authorities previously identified Newsome and Boatwright as the suspects accused of confronting Onfroy while armed.

Williams was arrested June 20. Boatwright was served with an arrest warrant on July 10 after he was jailed on unrelated drug charges. Allen was arrested July 25 in Georgia.

Officials continue to investigate.
