Witnesses who documented the aftermath of the shooting on social media identified Young Dolphs’ car, a vehicle with a unique and distinguishable camouflaged paint job. Scores of fans arrived at the scene after the shooting to express grief and support.

In the hours after the shooting, social media rumors began to spread of shootings connected to other Memphis rappers. A Memphis police spokesman said there is no evidence of shootings at two of the most rumored locations.

The spokesman did confirm shooting in the Orange Mound intersection of Deadrick Avenue and Haynes Street, which is near Melrose High School. There were no injuries in this shooting, which was also shared across social media. Any connection to the shooting of Young Dolph was unclear.

Memphis City Councilman J.B. Smiley and Tennessee State Rep. London Lamar called Wednesday for the city to institute a curfew after Young Dolph’s shooting, with Smiley referring to “reports of additional shootings.”

This isn’t the first time the rapper has been targeted. As previously reported, back in 2017 Young Dolph suffered multiple non-life-threatening gunshot wounds in Hollywood. He was heard calling Yo Gotti a b—h back then. Gotti and Dolph have had a longstanding beef for years.

4 years later, Dolph was once again shot at but this time it was fatal.
