Young Dolph was tragically murdered in Memphis this week and a memorial was erected in his honor. Now another tragedy has taken place at that site.

 ABC24 Memphis reports that a man was shot at the Young Dolph memorial. This was a scene where people were laying flowers and paying respects. Now they have more bloodshed to deal with.

This incident was also captured on video. The news camera was at the scene filming a different piece. Then you can hear a loud pop off camera. This was the shot in question.

TMZ reports that, “Memphis police tell us they’re currently on scene at a location about half a mile from the cookie shop where one man was shot … he’s in non-critical condition. Cops say they immediately detained two suspects, and a third was detained after a short chase.”


We’re hoping that the violence stops, because it is indeed senseless. Now Memphis has even more of a bad look after such a tragedy in their city.

You can check out the video footage below to see what they were able to capture on video.

Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
