Memphis Police Department releases surveillance video of Young Dolph’s fatal shooting

The Memphis Police Department released surveillance video footage of two men — one allegedly carrying a gun — who they say are wanted in connection with the murder of rapper Young Dolph. On Sunday, Young Dolph was shot and killed at a gas station after an altercation with two men. Police say the men fired eight or nine shots into the parked SUV Dolph was riding in. He was transported to Regional One hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“It is senseless violence and tragic,” said Major Arnold Williams of the Memphis Police Department in a statement. “Please be assured that the men in our images are responsible for the death of Young Dolph.” He said they are asking the public to call the department at 901-657-4900 if they recognize the suspects.

The Memphis rapper, who was born Quentin Hawkins and nicknamed “Young Knox”, faced gun and drug charges in 2013, but was acquitted in 2014. Weeks later, he was among dozens of rappers — including Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, and T.I. — convicted of drug possession and sentenced to short jail sentences.
