A third man indicted in the shooting death of South Florida rapper XXXTentacion has been arrested in Georgia.

U.S. Marshals confirmed that 22-year-old Robert Allen was arrested at the home of his sister on Wednesday near Macon, Ga., after federal agents received information he was in the area.

Allen was caught on surveillance camera at a Deerfield Beach motorcycle shop minutes before the rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, was shot and killed on June 18.

A total of four people were indicted in the murder, with two of them – 22-year-old Dedrick Williams and 22-year-old Michael Boatwright – already in custody. Only 20-year-old Trayvon Newsome remains free at this time.

A Broward County native, who was living in Parkland at the time of his death, XXXTentacion was a part of several chart-topping songs – including “Sad,” which rose to No. 1 in the week following his death.
