The police could get closer to Young Dolph’s killers.
Less than a week after the rapper was shot dead in his hometown of Memphis, the getaway car his killers escaped in may have been found.
A white Mercedes-Benz was found in the Orange Mound neighborhood of South Memphis in the 1100 block of Bradley Street on Saturday, November 20, according to a reporter from FOX13.
The white E-Class Coupé appeared to have been given up. The footage shows the vehicle being towed out of a driveway of a residential building while neighbors watched and the police surrounded the area.

The vehicle bears a striking resemblance to the vehicle depicted at the crime scene. According to a report from TMZ, the car was found five kilometers from the location of the shooting. It is unclear whether the person whose property the car was found will be questioned, but it is likely that they may be a person of interest.

The Memphis Police Department has yet to confirm that this was actually the vehicle they were looking for. However, based on preliminary evidence, it could be a match.
Two masked armed men stopped and opened fire on Dolph when he was at Makeda’s Cookies on Tuesday. He was fatally wounded on the spot before the murderers fled in the white Mercedes. The police published pictures of the suspects.
The murder is even more shocking as Dolph reportedly saw no threats to his life or feuds when he returned to his hometown for his annual Thanksgiving charity event.
