Yo Gotti is reportedly a person of interest

Young Dolph was hospitalized after being shot multiple times in Los Angeles. The TKTK rapper was shot while standing on the street outside of the Shoe Palace at the intersection of Hollywood & Highland.

According to reports, Young Dolph got into a fight with three men outside of the Loews Hotel where he was staying. At one point, Dolph was knocked to the ground and one of the men shot him several times. He ran, bleeding, into the nearby Shoe Palace. Dolph was taken to the hospital in critical condition but is expected to survive the shooting.

The three men fled, with two of them hoofing it away on foot and another hopping into an Escalade. The Escalade driver took the car all of one block before abandoning it at a gas station.

The Los Angeles Police Department has detained one person in connection with the shooting, but there’s no information on his/her identity. According to TMZ, Dolph’s hip-hop rival Yo Gotti is being considered by police as a person of interest; witnesses claim that Gotti was involved.

However, Memphis’ Commercial Appeal reported that police on the scene heard no such talk about Yo Gotti. “While we were there at the scene, there was no mention of him being a person of interest,” LAPD officer Mike Lopez told the paper.
