Police release surveillance images of suspects in fatal shooting of rapper Young Dolph

Police in Memphis have released surveillance images of three men they say opened fire on rapper Young Dolph during a robbery attempt late last week. The rapper, born Christopher Dorsey, was rushed to the hospital with gunshot wounds to his back after two of the shooters fired at least 10 rounds toward a car containing Young Dolph and several companions. The 37-year-old rapper reportedly died at the hospital, and police are looking for the shooters. Police say a fifth person was also shot. No arrests have been made yet.

According to a local TV station, Dolph is the founder of the Memphis-based rap group Young Dolph’s Muscle Cars. The group produced a number of songs in 2014, including the track “Alive,” about hitting the highway for a good time, and includes the song “The Devil’s Whisper.” Several notable artists including Kanye West, Gucci Mane, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, and T.I. have had songs produced by Young Dolph.
