Third sus­pect in rap­per’s fa­tal shoot­ing in Broward jail

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Local - By Aric Chokey Staff writer

Three out of four peo­ple ac­cused of par­tic­i­pat­ing in the armed rob­bery and fa­tal shoot­ing of rap­per XXXTenta­cion are now in po­lice cus­tody in Broward County.

Robert Allen, 22, of Lauder­hill, was booked into the Broward jail early Fri­day. He made his first court ap­pear­ance in Broward County later that day when Judge Kim Theresa Mol­lica or­dered he re­main in cus­tody with­out bond.

Allen was ar­rested at his sis­ter’s home in Ge­or­gia and jailed Wed­nes­day in Dodge County, south­east of At­lanta.

XXXTenta­cion was am­bushed and shot mul­ti­ple times June 18 out­side of a Deer­field Beach mo­tor­cy­cle shop, and died later that day.

The per­former, 20, had vis­ited a bank be­fore he went shop­ping and had with­drawn $50,000 that the killers are ac­cused of steal­ing.

Allen is not ac­cused of be­ing the gun­man.

The Broward Sher­iff ’s Of­fice called Allen a per­son of in­ter­est in the case.

But on July 18, a grand jury in­dicted him and three other men who are all charged with first de­gree mur­der with a firearm and armed rob­bery. Allen also faces a charge of vi­o­lat­ing his pro­ba­tion.

Two of the men — Dedrick D. Wil­liams, 22, of Pom­pano Beach and Michael Boatwright, 22, of Fort Lauderdale — are also in cus­tody in the main Broward County jail in Fort Lauderdale. The in­dict­ment de­scribes Boatwright as the gun­man.

Still be­ing sought is Trayvon New­some, 20, of Fort Lauderdale.
