Surveillance video captured the murder of rapper XXXTentacion

The fatal shooting of rapper XXXTentacion was recorded on surveillance footage, which was shown to the public for the first time during a court hearing this week in Broward County, Florida.

The surveillance footage shows two men trailing the rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, going into RIVA Motorsport in Deerfield, according to TMZ.

Later, the 20-year-old rapper’s BMW was stopped by two assailants, purported to be Michael Boatwright and Trayvon Newsome, who flashed their firearms as they attempted to steal his Louis Vuitton bag.

The rapper grappled with Boatwright and Newsome before they shot him at point-blank range.

One of the suspects got into the passenger side of XXXTentacion’s vehicle before escaping the scene. They fled with the bag and $50,000 cash.

Prosecutors presented the video during a discovery and bail hearing for Robert Allen, who is one of four suspects that has been charged with the slaying of the rapper back in June.

The four suspects are Boatwright, Newsome, Dedrick Williams, and Allen.

Allen will remain in custody after the judge ordered for him to be held without bond, according to WPLG.
