On Monday, 20-year-old Florida rapper XXXTentacion, real name is  Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was gunned down while sitting in his car after leaving a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

Police made an arrest in XXXTentacion’s murder Wednesday night during a vigil in South Florida to celebrate the life of the young rapper. TMZ reports that XXXTentacion’s mother told friends and family at the vigil that the police told her they have XXXTentacion’s killer in custody.

Someone at the candlelight vigil recorded video of XXXTentacion’s mother letting everyone know she just received a text message from the police of an arrest. The video was posted to the Instagram account Streetwatcherzx, but it’s unclear if the person running that account was at the vigil recording the video.

In the video, you can hear someone mentioning there was a highway chase on I-95 which may have been the police chasing and arresting XXXTentacion’s killer.
