The Hip Hop community is mourning the loss of Memphis rapper Young Dolph who was gunned down in his hometown on Wednesday afternoon.
Maurice Hill, the owner of Makeda’s Butter Cookies store where the shooting happened, said that the rapper had walked into the store to buy cookies. Someone then drove up and shot and killed him at the South Memphis bakery. Police has released surveillance pictures of suspected shooters, the two people who stood outside of Makeda’s and opened fire.
The two masked suspects are seen getting out of a white, two-door Mercedes Benz armed with guns, as they approach the rapper to shoot him. No arrests have been made in the 36-year-old’s death so far.
Please see the attached photos of the suspects and suspect vehicle from the 2370 Airways Boulevard murder.
