A Memphis man has been arrested in the critical shooting of Memphis rapper Young Dolph, who was shot outside the Loews Hollywood hotel Tuesday afternoon, Los Angeles police said Wednesday.
Corey McClendon, 43, has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting. His bond has been set at $1 million, said LAPD spokeswoman officer Irma Mota.
Earlier Wednesday, Mota said Memphis rapper Yo Gotti was not a person of interest in Dolph’s shooting, despite media reports saying he was. The two musicians are known rivals and were staying in the same hotel in Hollywood.
Mota said she did not know if McClendon was associated with Gotti.
