TMZ reports that rapper Young Dolph was gunned down on Wednesday and from a video taken from the scene, the rapper’s car was seen parked outside the cookie store.
“The rapper was gunned down Wednesday in Memphis, TN outside a local cookie store … and there’s already a massive police presence with people recording the aftermath. A video from the crime scene shows his car parked outside the shop while police investigate.”
“A source says Dolph went into the store, and a vehicle pulled up, firing through a front window and striking the rapper.”
