Two more people have been named as suspects in the shooting that killed rapper Young Dolph.
Joshua Taylor and Devin Burns, both 26, are being investigated by the Memphis Police Department in connection with the November 17, 2021 shooting.
It is unclear what role the two men allegedly played in the rapper’s death as police did not provide any details.
Police released descriptions of the new suspects. Burns is described as a black male, 5’6 tall and weighing 135 pounds. Taylor, also a black male, is 6’6 and weighs 180 pounds.
Two other suspects, Justin Johnson, 23, and Cornelius Smith, 32, pleaded guilty earlier this month to first-degree murder. It is believed that both acted as gunmen in the incident.
Johnson, who performs under the name Straight Drop, released a song called Track Hawk, which includes the lyrics “50 photos in 20 seconds.”
In a music video for the song, he is seen holding a stack of $100 bills and rapping in front of a gas station: “The only time he saw my face when I blamed him.”
The 23-year-old said on social media that he was planning to make a comeback around the time the song was released, with many believing he was looking for attention.
Johnson and Smith were also charged with burglary and murder. Their next court date is scheduled for February 25 in Shelby County.
OTHER PAUSE WHEN RUN
Another suspect, 27-year-old Shondale Bennett, is currently under arrest although his arrest was announced by US police chiefs on Jan.
Barnett is alleged to have been a sidekick in the rapper’s death and is believed to have attempted to kill Thorton’s brother, who was also at the bakery at the time of the shooting.
Clay County Sheriff Paul Harden said Barnett was arrested and arrested on January 11 on an pending order from Shelby County. He was arrested by the Indiana State Police, but Shelby County called Clay County a few days later.
“… They told us they didn’t want to come pick up Mr. Barnett anymore and that we would release him at that point,” said Harden.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that it was an arrest warrant for Barnett but could not provide details about the incident.
