News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Oct. 5, 2018: Suspects in the fatal shooting of Caribbean-American rapper, XXXTentacion, won’t be getting out of jail anytime soon.
Despite the request of his attorney, one of the accused killers, Robert Allen, will remain behind bars after a Broward County judge ruled last Thursday that he should be held without bond.
The ruling comes as new surveillance video shows the moment two gunmen ambushed and shot Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, known professionally as XXXTentacion.
The shooting occurred at Deerfield Beach Motorsports on June 18, 2018, shortly before 4 p.m.
Four men are charged in the Jamaican roots rapper’s murder – Michael Boatwright, 22, Trayvon Newsome, 20, Dedrick Williams, 22, and Robert Allen, 22.
Allen, 22, is one of four men indicted on first-degree murder in the June 18 ambush, robbery and shooting outside RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach.
Prosecutors presented surveillance video that showed Allen in the alleged getaway vehicle when co-defendants Michael Boatwright and Trayvon Newsome got out of the car carrying guns.
Allen’s attorney argued that a bond should be set because his client never got out of the car and didn’t pull the trigger.
Authorities said Boatwright was the triggerman in the shooting.
