A picture of Dolph in LA posted shortly before the shooting.
Young Dolph was shot multiple times near the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday according to multiple reports. Dolph apparently got into an altercation with a group of men that turned physical before one of the assailants pulled out a weapon and let off a number of shots. The Memphis rapper is in critical condition but is expected to survive. An early report from TMZ suggested that Yo Gotti, who was widely speculated to be behind an attempt on Dolph’s life in Charlotte earlier this year, was a person of interest in the case.
The LAPD has since denied that claim, although Captain Cory Palka told reporters he believes the incident was “related in some capacity to the music industry.” Police detained one suspect but are also seeking another, whom witnesses described as a 6-foot tall Black man with a stocky build. A gold Cadillac Escalade that the shooter was allegedly driving was recovered near the scene. Yo Gotti associate Blac Youngsta turned himself in on charges related to the Charlotte shooting back in May, but has denied any involvement.
