The Broward County Sheriff’s Department added that the man turned himself in using his lawyer. 

It is believed that Newsome was one of the trigger men in the June shooting. 

The four men are accused of killing 20-year-old XXXTentacion in June. 

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

He was booked into jail in Dodge County, Georgia, and is being held on a warrant from Broward County, Florida.

The rap star, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, was fatally shot as he left a motorcycle dealership in Florida.

Deputy US Marshal John Edgar said they received information that Allen was possibly staying with his sister in Eastman, Georgia.

Officers staked out his sister’s home and said she was cooperative when police came looking for her brother.  

Broward County panel formally charged Dedrick Williams, 22; Michael Boatwright, 22; Trayvon Newsome, 20; and Robert Allen, 22, last week.   

The car driven by XXXTentacion was blocked by a dark-colored SUV as it was exiting the Riva Motor Sports motorcycle shop on June 18.

Two masked men got out of the SUV with a gun intending to rob him while he had a Louis Vuitton bag containing $50,000 in cash, police said.

A struggled ensued and the rapper was shot multiple times by one or more gunman, who took the bag and fled.

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

XXXTentacion, who sported dreadlocks and facial tattoos and who pronounced his name ‘Ex ex ex ten-ta-see-YAWN’, was an up-an-coming act who had amassed numerous fans with his music that addressed depression.

He also drew criticism over bad behavior and multiple arrests, including charges that he severely beat and abused his girlfriend.

At least one of the suspects, Williams, was seen in the store on surveillance cameras while XXXTentacion was shopping.

A store clerk said Williams purchased a black neoprene mask and that he recognized Williams as a repeat customer, according to the warrant.

Williams later told police he was with others at the motorcycle shop but did not know in advance they intended to rob the rapper.

Authorities say Williams drove the SUV.

‘Williams stated that he wanted to tell the truth … Williams stated he was fearful of being labeled a snitch when he went to prison,’ the warrant says.

Later, police said Williams’ girlfriend told them he had told her he was involved but that it was Boatwright and Newsome who carried out the actual robbery and slaying.

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

Other evidence includes cellphone video and photos with three of the suspects holding large amounts of $100 bills, police said.
