20-year-old suspect Trayvon Newsome was arrested in Broward County, Florida on Tuesday. TMZ reports that Florida police believe he was one of two trigger men, alongside Michael Boatwright, who was arrested in early July. The Broward Sheriff's Office released a mugshot of Newsome on Tuesday after he was apprehended.
Police records reveal that Newsome turned himself in and was booked on two charges of murder in the first degree and robbery with a deadly weapon.
According to Florida police, XXXTentacion withdrew $50,000 in cash shortly before the murder took place. He reportedly put the cash in a Louis Vuitton bag that the four suspects took from him at Riva Motorsports before the fatal shooting. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel called the incident a "tragic shooting" and told the Deerfield Beach City Commission, "It’s a horrific crime and we’re going to solve it and we’re going to bring those who did it to justice."
The third indicted suspect to be arrested in the case, Robert Allen, pleaded not guilty to the murder of XXXTentacion. According to court documents obtained by Complex, the 22-year-old entered the not guilty plea less than a week after he was arrested on charges of first-degree murder, robbery, and drug possession. The other two suspects Michael Boatwright and Dedrick Devonshay Williams had previously entered not guilty pleas of their own.
On Wednesday, Newsome was denied bond. "I find probably cause. I further find the proof of guilt to be evident, or the presumption great," said presiding judge Kim Theresa Mollica. "Good luck to you, sir."
