Memphis police were at the scene on Wednesday afternoon at 2370 Airways Boulevard near Ketchum.

Police and witnesses were seen in front of a broken window at Makeda's Butter Cookies, a bakery in the mall where Young Dolph had recently visited.

A man who answered the phone identifying himself as the owner of Makeda confirmed that a young man had been shot while buying cakes.

Police said one victim was found at the scene. They did not release details about the suspect.

“The victim will be identified once the information of the relatives has been finalized. Please call 901-528-CASH for tips, ”said MPD.

Airways Boulevard, which runs in front of the scene, is reportedly supported as far as Interstate 240.

Young Dolph was the victim of a previous shooting during a fight at Loew's Hollywood Hotel in 2017 in Los Angeles. One person has been jailed for attempted murder in this case, but was released without charge.

Earlier that year, rapper Blac Youngsta, who signed with Yo Gotti, was accused of shooting more than 100 at Dolph's SUV in Charlotte, North Carolina.
