The man accused of fatally shooting Florida rapper XXXTentacion posted an apparent boast and threat on Facebook only two days after the killing.
“Don’t piss me off u will never know wats next,” the suspect, Dedrick Devonshay Williams, wrote in a message posted on Wednesday, two days after he was allegedly involved in shooting down the rapper in what police believe was a robbery gone wrong.
The warning was accompanied by four emojis: three of a gorilla and one of a smiley-face holding a finger to its lips, symbolizing “be quiet.”
At the time Williams posted the message, he was wanted by police for the murder, as a warrant for his arrest had been sworn the day of XXXTentacion’s killing. According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, police believe more people were involved.
“Homicide detectives are seeking additional suspects. The investigation continues,” the sheriff’s office said in an email to Oxygen.com.
Williams, a young father, goes by the nickname Chucky on Facebook, possibly referencing to the murderous protagonist in the “Child’s Play” horror movie franchise. He has a tattoo of the Chucky character on his right arm, according to the Daily Beast.
Williams has ties to the local rap scene in Broward County, as well as an extensive criminal record, according to the Sun Sentinel in South Florida.
He is on felony probation for grand theft auto and has been arrested for illegally possessing loaded firearms twice, and once for aggravated assault with a firearm, the newspaper reported, though two of those arrests were not prosecuted.
Williams is being held without bail.
XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was gunned down Monday in Pompano Beach after leaving a motorcycle dealership. He was 20.
