"Cops believe 3 people were involved in the murder of XXXTentacion ... because TMZ has learned there are THREE arrest warrants issued in the case," TMZ claims.

An arrest has been made for the shooting death of XXXTentacion, TMZ is reporting. The suspect's name is Dedrick D. Williams and he was taken into custody on Wednesday (June 20). 

As we previously reported, XXX was shot and killed earlier this week as he sat down in the driver's seat of his car, while outside of a motorcycle dealership in South Florida. He was quickly rushed to the hospital as a "Level 1" trauma patient afterward, but he would be pronounced dead a short while later.

Authorities said that two men approached the rapper and one fired the shot that killed him. TMZ reports that Williams is allegedly one of the men. "Broward County Sheriff's Dept. took the 22-year-old into custody Wednesday and booked him for first-degree murder," the news outlet confirms. See him below. 

During a vigil for her son on Wednesday (June 20), the late artist's mother told the crowd that an arrest was made for her son's killer. Take a look at that moment below.

"Someone at the gathering mentioned there was a chase on the nearby highway I-95 ... which may have ended with cops nabbing Williams for the murder of X," TMZ continues. "Williams was also hit with a probation violation for a previous grand theft auto charge. We're told he is being held without bail."

Plus, the suspect has previous arrests for "cocaine possession, weapons possession, domestic violence and aggravated assault with a firearm."
