'Person of interest' sought in shooting of XXXTentacion
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities in South Florida want to talk to a 22-year-old man wanted as a "person of interest" in the shooting death of rising rap star XXXTentacion.
Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said in a news release sent Tuesday night that detectives want to ask Robert Allen what he knows about the rapper's death.
She says he's also wanted on a felony warrant for violating probation for possession of flakka and carrying a concealed weapon. XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was shot June 18.
Detectives said an SUV blocked the 20-year-old rapper's luxury sports car in the driveway of a Fort Lauderdale-area motorcycle dealership and two masked men confronted him during an apparent robbery attempt. Twenty-two-year-old Dedrick Williams faces murder charges.
He hasn't entered a plea.
