Young Dolph was shot and killed outside of a Memphis bakery on Nov. 17. An arrest warrant has been issued for a 23-year-old Tennessee man named Justin Johnson in connection with the fatal shooting. The marshals service and the Memphis Police Department have been searching for suspects in the killing. A $15,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest.
