Description of Incident:

On Wednesday, July 18, a Broward County grand jury indicted four men involved in the mid-June murder of a local rapper as he exited a Deerfield Beach business.  Broward Sheriff's Office detectives need the public's help in locating the two who remain at large.

The two-count indictment (Link) charges Dedrick Williams, 22, Michael Boatwright, 22, Trayvon Newsome, 20, and Robert Allen, 22, with first-degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm.

Investigators say Boatwright and Newsome were the two armed suspects who confronted Jahseh Onfroy, aka XXXTentacion, when he was shot and killed in broad daylight on June 18.  Williams was arrested on June 20.  Boatwright was arrested on July 5 on unrelated drug charges.  On July 10, detectives served him with an arrest warrant for first-degree murder while at the BSO Main Jail.  The search continues for Allen and Newsome.
