                            Premeditated? New report claims XXXTentacion struggled before he was murdered and that the killers knew his identity

Rapper XXXTentaction whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy was shot dead on Monday in Miami while he was out buying a new motorcycle. Eyewitnesses earlier said that the 20-year-old rapper appeared "lifeless with no pulse" in his car before the authorities were called and his condition had initially been reported as critical but the rapper was declared dead at a local hospital. 

According to TMZ, it has now been reported that the person or persons who were responsible for shooting XXXTentacion likely knew who he was and it is believed that XXX struggled for his life. As per police documents, there were two men who jumped out of an SUV with guns and demanded property from the rapper. The documents reveal that there was a "brief struggle" before he was shot multiple times.

The documents also reveal that there is surveillance footage in the motorcycle store showing the two gunmen enter and walk past the rapper. The rapper was very well known in the area where he lived and so it is highly likely that the gunmen either knew who he was beforehand or knew it was him when they saw him. The two gunmen left the store and waited for 10 minutes for XXX to leave. 

A man called Dedrick Williams has been arrested for the murder and it is reported that the cops have arrest warrants for two others. The documents state that Dedrick may not have been the actual shooter but states that he "had an active part in the murder of [2 words redacted] by blocking the victim's vehicle so that the two gunmen (sic) could rob the victim at gunpoint."  

As XXX was leaving to get into his car, an SUV pulled up in front of him to block him from being able to leave and that is when the two gunmen jumped out of the vehicle and attacked the young rapper. In the surveillance photograph, and according to the warrant, Dedrick was seen wearing a pair of bright orange colored sandals. The other gunmen were reportedly wearing dark clothing and a red mask. Prior to the murder, the police also have a surveillance video showing Dedrick purchasing a black, neoprene mask. 

The rapper's family was convinced that murder was a conscious attempt. They are of the opinion that the rapper was a victim of a well plotted out murder and that the investigation process should concentrate more on finding who the murderers were.  

TMZ had initially reported that updates from dispatch audio reported that the incident was a "possible a drive-by shooting". "The alleged shooters left the scene in a black Dodge Journey," they added. It is known that XXXTentacion had his fair share of feuds with several people but there weren't any serious fights that have surfaced to provide a substantial amount of suspicion.
