Three men are facing charges related to the shooting near Young Dolph’s memorial. According to multiple news outlets, Terrance Jones, Jailon Nelvis and Tavis McQueen have all been charged with aggravated assault, evading arrest, three counts of possession of a prohibited weapon, two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of theft of property, and six counts of unlawful possession of a weapon.
The men were reportedly driving past Airways on Thursday (Nov. 18) when Jones, who was in the backseat, shot into a crowd that formed next door to Makeda’s Cookies, the location of a newly-created Dolph memorial. After striking an individual, they attempted to make their escape and were immediately followed by cops who happened to already be on the scene of the crime.
According to the affidavit, their vehicle eventually crashed on Kerr Ave and Mississippi Blvd shortly, prompting the men to exit the car, dispose of their handguns and run away. Cops caught up to them and brought them into custody, later discovering two guns in the street and an additional two in the vehicle. The men are due in court on Nov. 22.
As for the victim who was struck, he was taken to a nearby hospital in non-critical condition.
As REVOLT previously reported, the incident near Young Dolph’s memorial is the second shooting to take place in the vicinity of Makeda’s Cookies. The day before (Nov. 17), the “Get Paid” emcee was shot and killed as he purchased some chocolate cookies from the local business.
As authorities search for the suspect, the cookie shop, which has been boarded and turned into a memorial, has launched a GoFundMe to get financial assistance from the public following Dolph’s death and a recent burglary. The rapper, according to the campaign, had been aware of their burdens and “was helping them attract more customers by frequently visiting and posting to help increase revenue.”
