Third Person Indicted For the Shooting Death of Young Dolph

A third suspect, 43-year-old Hernandez Govan, was indicted in Young Dolph's murder. Hernandez is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in the November 2021 killing of the rapper in Memphis.

Young Dolph was gunned down outside of Makeda's bakery last November. The autopsy report stated that the entertainer was shot 24 times throughout his body after being ambushed by multiple shooters.

Dolph was heavily adored and considered the "heart" of Memphis- the city has heavily grieved his loss. Two other men, Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith, have been in custody for his murder since January. (Hernandez Govan is pictured below. Photo by Shelby County Sheriff's Office)
