(Broward County, FL) – Rapper XXXTentacion’s final moments of life were caught on surveillance video up to the moment that he was gunned by thugs attempting to rob him as he left a Pompano Beach bike shop.
The video was played during a discovery and bail hearing for suspect Robert Allen and it shows XXX walking into the bike shop with a friend and carrying a Louis Vuitton bag with 50k in it.
Moments later, two of the suspects enter the bike shop, leave and park across the street and wait ten minutes for XXX to exit the business. Once the rapper attempts to pull out he is cut off by the SUV carrying all of the suspects and two of the men jump out with guns drawn. It looks as if they struggle with XXX as his attempts to fight them off as they’re trying to steal a chain off of his neck. At this point, one of the suspects goes to the passengers side of the car, grabs the Louis bag with the cash while the taller suspect fires off shots. XXXTentacion never exited his vehicle leaving him helpless at point blank range as the murderer opened fire.

One of Kavanaugh’s accusers said Judge was in the room with Kavanaugh when she was assaulted more than 30 years ago.
(Washington, DC-AP) — A Senate confirmation vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will be delayed for at least a week. Senate Republican leaders say the delay will allow the FBI to conduct a supplemental background investigation of Kavanaugh, who is accused of sexual assault. The federal judge has strongly denied any allegations of sexual assault or serious misconduct. The delay was prompted by Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake and Senate Democrats, who pressed for a follow-up FBI probe before a confirmation vote.
Alaska Republican Lisa Murkowski later joined the call for the FBI investigation. That posed a problem for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who presides over a thin 51-49 majority in the Senate. McConnell wants to schedule a confirmation vote for Kavanaugh as soon as possible. Earlier, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to refer Kavanaugh to the full Senate. The vote was 11-10. Meantime, Kavanaugh buddy Mark Judge has reportedly agreed to cooperate with investigators. One of Kavanaugh’s accusers has said Judge was in the room with Kavanaugh when she was assaulted more than 30 years ago.
