Two suspects in the murder of Young Dolph have been apprehended.

According to NBC News, the U.S. Marshals Service has confirmed that two individuals have been captured in association with the case.

One suspect, Justin Johnson, was reportedly apprehended on Tuesday (January 11) in Indiana, while the second suspect, Cornelius Smith, was brought into custody at an earlier date and indicted on Tuesday.

Both men are accused of first-degree murder for the fatal shooting of Dolph on November 17. The 36-year-old rapper had been outside a bakery in Memphis when he was gunned down by two masked men. His brother, who was also shot, survived the attack.
