The two suspected gunmen who allegedly shot and killed Young Dolph yesterday (Nov. 17) were caught on surveillance video during the attack, TMZ reports. On Thursday (Nov. 18), the outlet published still images from the footage, which show two men dressed in grey sweatpants, dark hoodies and white face masks opening fire in the parking lot in front of Makeda’s Cookies.

TMZ writes that one suspect appears to be holding a pistol, while the other was armed with a Draco AK-47 pistol. Police quickly arrived to the scene of the shooting, but an employee at Makeda’s reportedly said the two men left in a light-colored Mercedes.

As reported by REVOLT, Dolph was tragically killed Wednesday afternoon outside of the Memphis cookie shop. On Thursday, the owners of Makeda’s released an official statement about the incident.

“Because of this senseless tragedy, Makeda’s Cookies has decided to close today,” they wrote in a Facebook post. “We are heartbroken and saddened by the passing of Young Dolph. He was a regular customer and loved Makeda’s Cookies. Our hearts and condolences goes out to his family.”

After the shooting, several Memphis Police Department squad cars were seen patrolling the parking lot of Prive, Yo Gotti’s restaurant. It’s unclear whether any threats were made against the “Rake It Up” rapper, but police were reportedly stationed in the area in case of any acts of retaliation.

It was also rumored that fellow Memphis native Blac Youngsta’s grandmother’s home was targeted by gunmen. However, this turned out to be untrue.

Local lawmakers urged authorities to enact a curfew in the Tennessee city on Wednesday night amidst growing tensions. However, Fox 13 reporter Joey Sulipeck tweeted that no curfew was enacted, but Police Chief C.J. Davis said “that doesn’t mean one won’t be needed at a later time.”

So far, police have not announced any suspects or made any arrests in connection with the shooting. We at REVOLT continue to send our deepest condolences to Dolph’s friends and family at this time. See the still images of the alleged gunmen on Twitter below.
