XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Onfroy, was gunned down June 18 in an apparent robbery as he left a motorsports store in Deerfield Beach, Fla.

Newsome was booked into Broward County's Main Jail on charges of first-degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon.

The Instagram post continued and said that 'According to the Broward County Sheriff's Department, Newsome turned himself in through his lawyers.

Even though only two of the four suspects were in custody at the time, a Broward County grand jury on July 18 indicted all four and charged each with first degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery.


Robert Allen, 22, of Fort Lauderdale was arrested at the end of July by the US Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Williams was arrested two days after the shooting, and Boatwright was arrested earlier this month on an unrelated drug charge.

The performer, 20, had visited a bank before he went shopping and had withdrawn $50,000 that the killers are accused of stealing out of the BMW XXXTentacion was driving. The two men left and got in their vehicle. One of the men - whom authorities later identified as Williams - bought a black mask. The rapper was shot after a brief struggle.

Police also found cellphone data on Boatwright's phone indicating it was near the motorcycle shop at the time of the killing.
