Photos of the alleged gunmen who killed rapper Young Dolph have been released as police hunt down the suspected shooters. There were rumors that Yo Gotti’s restaurant and Blac Youngsta‘s grandmother’s house got shot up, but police debunk both rumors.

However, police did shut down Yo Gotti‘s restaurant, Privé, in fear of retaliation. The latest inside…

The murder of rapper Young Dolph sent shockwaves through the industry and social media when reports were released that the rapper had been killed outside of his favorite bakery in his hometown of Memphis. The 36-year-old rapper, whose real name is Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., was gunned down yesterday (Nov. 17th) while he was paying a visit to his favorite hometown bakery, Makeda’s Cookies.


The alleged gunman were caught on surveillance camera and TMZ obtained stills from a video of the shooting, showing two men armed with guns. Both men kept their identities under wraps, wearing hoodies and jackets, grey sweatpants, hats and masks. It appears one of the alleged shooters had a Draco AK-47 and the other shooter had some sort of pistol.

An employee told police the men sped off in a lighter color Mercedes after firing the shots. They got away before the police arrived.

The city of Memphis is in turmoil over the shooting, leaving many to believe that more gun violence is to come.

In fear of retaliation, Memphis police officers stood guard outside of Privé before shutting it down as a safety precaution.

Yo Gotti and Young Dolph have had beef that goes back several years, however, Gotti has NOT been tied to the murder in any way. There were rumors that rival rapper Blac Youngsta’s grandmother’s home was shot up in retaliation and that also was false. She’s safe.

Granny is safe too, per Memphis Police.

Speaking of rap beefs…


Young Dolph has passed away five days after Soulja Boy said this on the Breakfast Club. Not saying this has anything to do with what happen but just crazy how energy works.

Dolph also had beef with rapper Soulja Boy. Days before Dolph’s death, Soulja Boy spoke about their beef during an interview on Power 105’s "The Breakfast Club." Check out the clip above.

In 2017, Dolph’s car was shot at over 100 times in Charlotte, N.C. A few months after that, Dolph was shot at in Los Angeles. Sheesh.

Police Chief CJ Davis held a press conference where she asked Memphis residents to stay home tonight and stay calm as MPD hunts for Young Dolph’s killer.

Young Dolph leaves behind two young children, Tre & Aria, and his longtime partner, Mia Jaye.
