On Nov 17th Young Dolph, who was only 36 years old, was standing outside Makeda’s Cookies, a place he normally visits in his hometown. When a vehicle pulled up alongside him and someone began “shooting through a front window and striking the rapper. TMZ has obtained surveillance footages from Wednesday’s shooting showing two men, with almost their entire bodies covered — grey sweatpants, jackets, hat/hood and masks gunning Dolph down. One man appears to have a pistol and the other a Draco AK-47 pistol.
These are pictures surfing the internet. I have gotten confirmation on the legitimacy of these photos from three separate law enforcement sources showing the gunmen responsible for killing Memphis rapper Young Dolph.

Per, the Sun they heard “approximately 50 gunshots” while at the Shell gas station across the street.”I was across the street right before the cops and the news arrived and screen recorded a live video of Young Dolph’s arm hanging out the window,” the source explained.
The video was captured seconds before the Dolph body was removed from the scene, according to the anonymous source initially published the 44-second footage on Twitter. By Wednesday evening, the video, which was first filmed using Facebook Live, had received over 60,000 views on Twitter.”
Following the deadly shooting of Young Dolph on Wednesday, an upmarket Memphis restaurant owned by a longstanding rival Yo Gotti was forced to close for the time being. According to the Associated Press, police have launched an intensive manhunt to find the shooters, but as of now have not publicly released any information on their identities or possible motives.
The case is still being investigated, no arrested have been made yet.
