While the investigation into the fatal shooting of Memphis’ own Young Dolph is ongoing, authorities have arrested and charged three men in connection with a shooting that occurred at the late rapper’s memorial approximately 24 hours after he was shot down.
As condolences were offered by fans and loved ones at 2630 Airways, Memphis police said gunshots rang out from the back seat of a gray four-door Nissan Versa that drove past. The men fled the scene and caused an accident when MPD followed them. According to police, the men ran out of the car after the accident and tried to dispose of their firearms.
A man was rushed to a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg.
23-year-old Terrance Jones, 19-year-old Jailon Nelvis and 22-year-old Travis McQueen have reportedly been charged with reckless driving, circumventing arrest, possession of prohibited weapons, theft and unlawful possession of weapons.
Officials are at the scene of a shooting at 2630 Airways. A man was shot and is classified as uncritical. Officers immediately arrested two suspects, and a third was arrested after brief persecution in Kerr and Mississippi.
The cause of this shooting is being investigated.
