Someone has been booking in connection with the Young Dolph shooting.
After the attempt on Young Dolph's life yesterday (September 26th) that has left the rapper in "critical but stable" condition, investigators for the LAPD have reportedly made an arrest in connection with the shooting.
According to The Los Angeles Times, one man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder that took place at Hollywood and Highland yesterday afternoon. Police say that Corey McClendon was arrested near the location of the shooting shortly after it occurred on Tuesday attack and has been booked as a suspect of attempted murder, this from Detective Megan Aguilar, acting as an LAPD spokeswoman. There's no word yet on whether or not McClendon was the one who fired the gun or if he simply participated in the brawl that escalated to the point of someone opening fire in the popular tourist area of Los Angeles. Young Dolph, the 32-year-old Memphis-area rapper, was shot several times in the torso area after he began arguing with three men outside the Loews Hollywood Hotel, according to police information that was made available yesterday.
After being shot,. Young Dolph managed to stand up and run into Shoe Palace, an establishment that is located on Hollywood Boulevard. Two of the men who had been involved with the altercation ran off, while the third jumped into a gold Cadillac Escalade and went to a gas station close by, before abandoning the vehicle and continuing on foot. McClendon was arrested early Wednesday morning and is being held with a bail set at $1 million. Several reports have the perpetrator(s) connected to the crew of rival rapper Yo Gotti, who was supposedly made a person of interst by the LAPD on Tuesday. Aguilar stated today that this information was inaccurate. According to her, the investigation has not yielded any solid evidence that the men who were present when Dolph was shot have any affiliation with Gotti.
2 Chainz, one of Dolph's frequent collaborators, sent his well wishes to the hospitalized rapper via Instagram this morning. Here's hoping that Dolph makes a speedy recovery from the horrifying incident soon and will be on stage spitting some bars in the near future.
