According to Fox 13 Memphis, Young Dolph’s life was taken at around 1 p.m. local time on Wednesday. Per their report, “three independent law enforcement sources” confirmed that he was shot and killed. He was 36 years old.
News of his death first broke on Facebook, where users posted videos from the scene in South Memphis. Young Dolph was reportedly visiting Makeda’s Butter Cookies when an unknown shooter drove up and let off the shots, striking and killing him. Dolph had his camo Lamborghini parked in front of the shop when police arrived at the scene. It appears Dolph was standing inside the shop during the shooting.
Just a week before, Young Dolph visited the same cookie shop. In a video, Dolph hypes the shop and brags on his oven-fresh, chocolate chip cookies.
Cops have released photos of two suspects with guns who are seen driving away from the scene in a white Mercedes Benz. As of now, no arrests have been made, and his shooting death is still under investigation.
