Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the death of U.S. rapper XXXTentacion.

That being said, it is believed that one more person was involved in the shooting.

The 20-year-old musician, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was shot as he left a motorcycle dealership in south Florida on Monday and died later in hospital. After rising to fame on SoundCloud, authorities arrested the rapper on home invasion charges two years ago.

Broward police said XXXTentacion was killed Monday during an apparent robbery. He's being held without bond in the Broward County Jail.

An arrest report said Williams was alone in the silver 2004 Honda and driving without a licence when he was spotted by an officer in Pompano Beach. As previously reported, there are arrest warrants out for three more suspects in XXXTentacion's murder case. He was shot while in his sports vehicle.

A 22-year-old tattoo artist, Dedrick Devonshay Williams, aka Tattoman Chuckie, has been arrested in connection with the murder of rapper, XXXTentacion. He is expected to appear in court on the probation violation charge at a later date.
