Police have reportedly arrested the gunman in XXXTentacion's murder.
With details continuing to break out about the murder of XXXTentacion last month, police are still looking for the people responsible for shooting one of the most promising rappers of the new generation. When he passed away, the collective hearts of the hip-hop community broke, creating a somber mood for the remainder of the week. Things were intensified when another talented rapper, Jimmy Wopo, was gunned down on the same day. With only one arrest made so far in relation to X's killing, TMZ has reported that the alleged gunman has been apprehended on first-degree murder charges this week.
22-year-old Michael Boatwright was arrested on a drug charge last week and was hit with a second warrant for his arrest yesterday for the murder. The report notes that detectives are naming Boatwright as the gunman in XXX's shooting and they are still looking for a second shooter. Much like several of the other people of interest in this case, Boatwright has a lengthy criminal history with multiple drug charges and a battery incident.

Williams, one of the men allegedly involved in XXXTentacion's murder, had been arrested and this is the second arrest made by the police in relation to the tragic event.
