Rapper Young Dolph, 36, killed in shooting

Star of the independent hip-hop scene, Young Dolph was shot and killed on Wednesday, November 17, 2021. While inside a cookie store in Memphis, Tennessee, where he used to be, a man entered and shot him before running away. In a statement, police said: “On November 17, 2021 at 12:24 am, Memphis Police officers were called to the scene of a shooting. A male victim was located and pronounced dead at the scene. None. Suspect information is not available at this time. Preliminary information indicates that the victim is Adolph Robert Thornton Jr. However, this information will be confirmed once the identification process is complete. “

When the rapper was only 36, Memphis Police added, “Our hearts go out to the family of Young Dolph and all who are affected by this horrific act of violence.” In 2017, the star had already been the victim of two shootings. According to American media, while in Charlotte, North Carolina, his car had come under a hundred shots. In Los Angeles, California, he was then hit by three bullets. In mourning, many fans reacted to his disappearance. Rapper Megan Thee Stallion, who had collaborated with him, also wrote on Twitter: “I’m sick, I can’t believe it! I’m praying for his family and friends! Rest in peace my friend, a real legend.”

Keke Palmer: “Rest in peace my brother”

In a lengthy text shared on Instagram, singer and actress Keke Palmer recalled meeting Young Dolph’s partner Mia Jaye on a plane with their two children as the family were on their way to visit her. Grieving, she shared, “Hearing this news breaks my heart. The way people move these days seems unreal. Instead of being inspired or encouraged by someone’s success, there is only jealousy and envy and it hurts me, especially for our community (…) When that happens you don’t just take that life away from them, but you hurt a million other people who ‘they were carrying. I’m sorry for your loss Mia and I’m sorry I lost you Dolph. I send as much love as possible to these beautiful children who must now grow up without their father. Rest in peace my brother. “
