Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives believe the 20-year-old rapper, who was born and raised in Broward’s city of Plantation, was the victim of a targeted crime during a planned ambush, records show according to TMZ.
Deputies arrested Dedrick Devonshay Williams, who wasn’t the shooter, on Wednesday, and they are searching for two other suspects. Williams, according to the report, was driving the SUV blocking the rapper from leaving.
Williams, 22, is facing a first-degree murder charge and is being held without bond.
“We are hoping that we make further arrests as we progress,” Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said Thursday.
Deputies reportedly have surveillance video of the rapper inside the RIVA Motorsports dealership in Deerfield Beach, while the suspected gunmen walked inside, left the store and waited for him to walk out.
After the rapper left the dealership on Monday afternoon, detectives believe the driver of an SUV blocked him, and two men jumped out of the passenger side of an SUV armed with guns, according to records TMZ had access to.
There was a “brief struggle” during the “possible robbery” before the shooting, the BSO records show, according to TMZ. Deputies said the men removed a bag from his car and fled after shooting him. He was shot about 4 p.m. and doctors at Broward Health North declared him dead about 5:30 p.m.
