Authorities are looking for a person of interest in the shooting of South Florida rapper XXXTentacion as friends and family are gathering for a memorial for the slain artist.

Broward Sheriff's Office officials announced Wednesday that they are searching for 22-year-old Robert Allen to see what he knows about the murder.

Authorities have already arrested 22-year-old Dedrick Devonshay Williams in the June 18 killing of the 20-year-old rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy.

The rapper was ambushed by two gunmen outside Riva Motorsports in Deerfield Beach. Authorities believe the motive was a robbery.

BSO officials released a photo of Williams that shows him outside the motorcycle shop the day of the shooting.

Officials also said they've found the SUV that was used to block XXXTentacion as he was leaving the bike shop.

Meanwhile, a public viewing is being held Wednesday at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, where family and friends will pay tribute to the rapper.
