MIAMI — The third of four suspects in the shooting death of an emerging South Florida rap star XXXTentacion has been arrested in rural Georgia.

The U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested 22-year-old Robert Allen of Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday. He was booked into jail in Dodge County, Georgia, and is being held on a warrant from Broward County, Florida.
