*The last suspect at large in the murder of rapper XXXTentacion was arrested Tuesday and booked into jail on a first-degree murder charge.

According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, 20-year-old Trayvon Newsome, of Fort Lauderdale, surrendered to authorities at around 5 p.m. ET at his lawyer’s office in Fort Lauderdale.

In addition to the murder charge, Newsome was booked on a charge of robbery with a deadly weapon. He is currently being held without bond.

Dedrick Williams, Robert Allen, Michael Boatwright, and Newsome have all been charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm. Newsome is scheduled to have an initial court appearance today (Aug 8).

XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, was ambushed and shot multiple times June 18 as he pulled out of a Deerfield Beach motorcycle shop, and died later that day. The rapper, 20, had visited a bank before he went shopping and had withdrawn $50,000 that the killers are accused of stealing out of the BMW XXXTentacion was driving.

Even though only two of the four suspects were in custody at the time, a Broward County grand jury on July 18 indicted all four and charged each with first degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery.

According to the indictment, Boatwright and Newsome were the two suspects who confronted XXXTentacion when he was shot and killed. The grand jury found he possessed a gun during the robbery and killing.
