UPDATE 9/27/17 1:38 P.M. EST: According to LAPD spokeswoman officer Irma Mota, 43-year-old Corey McClendon has been arrested and charged with attempted murder in the shooting. Mota said that despite reports, rival rapper Yo Gotti was not a person of interest in Dolph’s shooting. However, the officer does not know if Gotti was associated with McClendon.
UPDATE 8:28 P.M. EST: According to TMZ, one person has been detained in connection with the shooting. It’s also reported that Yo Gotti is a person of interest in this case. Apparently both rappers were staying in the same Hollywood hotel when their crews got into a disagreement. This comes after a February incident where Gotti-signed artist Blac Youngsta shot multiple bullets at Young Dolph’s vehicle in Charlotte.
It’s being reported that Young Dolph was shot in Hollywood and is being rushed to the hospital.
According to TMZ, the But I’m Bulletproof rapper suffered multiple gunshot wounds Tuesday afternoon just outside Shoe Palace at the famous Hollywood and Highland intersection.
Luckily, officers were nearby the crowded tourist area and responded immediately. No arrests have been made at this time.
Law enforcement officials were unclear about how many people had been involved in the shooting, but say that Dolph’s injuries appear to be non-life threatening.
We wish the performer a full and speedy recovery.
