The fourth and final suspect in the XXXTentacion murder case has been arrested.

Police in Florida confirmed Trayvon Newsome, 20, was taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon after he surrendered at his lawyer’s office in Fort Lauderdale.

He was arrested on a charge of first-degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon.

Newsome’s arrest comes exactly two weeks after another suspect accused of murdering XXXTentacion, Robert Allen of Fort Lauderdale, was arrested at his sister’s house in southeast Georgia.

Allen was captured on CCTV minutes before the rapper was shot to death on June 18.

XXXTentacion was murdered for a Louis Vuitton bag containing $50,000 (£38,000), according to court documents.

The rapper had just left the Riva Motorsports store in Florida and put the bag packed full of $100 notes into his BMW when he was gunned down in cold blood on June 18, police say.

As well as Newsome and Allen, Dedrick Williams, 22, and Michael Boatwright, 22 have been charged with first degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery.

And according to an arrest warrant, XXXTentacion – real name Jahseh Onfroy – was cut off by a dark coloured SUV as he tried to leave the car park.

Boatwright and Newsome got out of the vehicle and confronted the 20-year-old rapper before a struggle ensued and the fatal shots were fired, according to the indictment.

The group then allegedly took the bag and fled.

Williams was arrested first, just two days after Onfroy died.

Boatwright was charged on July 10 whilst already behind bars having been arrested on unrelated drug charges.

CCTV recorded Williams being in the store at the same time as Onfrey, court records show, and a store clerk claimed Williams bought a neoprene mask.

According to the records, Williams admitted being at the shop with the other three men, but denied knowing that they would rob XXXTentacion.

“Williams stated that he wanted to tell the truth… Williams stated he was fearful of being labelled a snitch when he went to prison,” the warrant said.

Police say other evidence includes mobile phone pictures of three of the men flaunting large amounts of money, and claims by Williams’ girlfriend that he was involved.
