The person or persons who gunned down XXXTentacion planned on killing him, and XXX struggled for his life.
TMZ has obtained the arrest warrant, which says the murder was “premeditated.” According to the warrant, there were 2 men who jumped out of the passenger side of an SUV armed with guns and demanded property from XXX. The documents say there was a “brief struggle.” He was then shot, and they removed a small bag from XXX’s car and fled the scene.
TMZ broke the story … X was leaving a motorcycle shop in Pompano Beach Florida. The warrant says as he was leaving to get into his car, the SUV pulled in front of him to block him from leaving, and that’s when the gunmen jumped out.
Dedrick Williams has been arrested for the murder. TMZ broke the story … cops have arrest warrants for 2 others.
Although cops say the murder was “premeditated,” that doesn’t necessarily mean XXX was a specific target. Premeditation can occur in seconds. From the warrant, it appears this was a robbery … we don’t know if the gunmen had their sights set on XXX in advance.
The Medical Examiner ruled the cause of death as multiple gunshot wounds.
There is surveillance video, and according to the warrant Dedrick was wearing a white tank top and bright orange-colored sandals. The other gunman was wearing dark clothing and a red mask.
Cops also have surveillance video from a store prior to the murder, showing Dedrick purchasing a black, neoprene mask.
