Slain Rapper XXXTentacion
gets sendoff at Memorial in Florida 

SUNRISE, Fla. — 100’s of fans gathered Wednesday at a public memorial in a hockey arena here for rising young rapper XXXTentacion and thousands more were expected to view the body of the murdered young singer.

About 1,000 people were in attendance as of noon but officials at the BT&T Center arena said up to 19,000 more people were expected throughout the day. Phones and other electronics were not permitted inside the arena.
As fans queued to pay their respects, Broward County detectives searched for a possible second suspect in XXXTentacion’s murder. On Wednesday, the sheriff’s office posted a bulletin informing the public that they are trying to locate and question Robert Allen, 22. It says he was captured on surveillance video outside the motorcycle dealership on June 18, the same day the rapper was fatally shot.

Last week, prosecutors arrested Dedrick Williams, 22, and charged him with first-degree murder in the case. He is currently being held without bail in the Broward County jail.

The memorial viewing for the slain rapper was held at the BB&T Center, a 20,000-seat arena in Sunrise, Fla., that is home to the Florida Panthers hockey team. 

The memorial was organized by his family and fans and advertised on his Instagram account last week. "Come say your final goodbye," it read.
A tribute video of the rapper played during the first hour of the viewing, and celebrity guests were expected.
