Young Dolph was murdered in Memphis, and his alleged killer did not submit himself to authorities as he promised. Cops went looking for another man on top of Straight Droppp and now both have been captured.

Fox 13 reported that Memphis police were on the look for Justin Johnson, also known as Straight Droppp, and Cornelius Smith. The latter is said to be the gunman in the Bass Pro Shop hat in the video.

Johnson was arrested by U.S. Marshals around 3 p.m. local time in Indiana. There was a $15k reward for information leading to his capture. Johnson faces charges of first-degree murder and theft of property between $10,000 and $60,000.

Cornelius Smith was arrested in Memphis. He faces charges for first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, employment of a firearm in the commission of a dangerous felony, and theft of property over $10,000. 

Young Dolph’s murder left a hole in the Memphis community and drill rap culture. Even after his death, a Thanksgiving giveaway that he was planning went off as scheduled. His life is now celebrated as authorities are looking for those who are responsible for taking this artist from us far too soon.
