Second person arrested in rapper XXXTentacion’s murder

A 22-year-old man was arrested in connection with the death of XXXTentacion, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.

Michael Boatwright, 22, was arrested after leaving a Deerfield Beach business.

Detectives served Boatwright with an arrest warrant for first-degree murder while in the Broward Sheriff’s Office main jail.

Just before 4 p.m. on June 18, Boatwright and another armed accomplice confronted Jahseh Onfroy, also known as XXXTentacion, in an apparent robbery as he was leaving RIVA Motorsports, according to the sheriff’s office.

At least one of the suspects fired a gun, striking Onfroy. Both of the suspects fled in a dark-color SUV.  Onfroy was transported to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead, officials said.
