A terrible video reveals the moment after young Dorf was shot and killed in a biscuit shop in Memphis. Rapper Young Dolph, whose real name is Adolph Robert Thornton Jr, was shot and killed in Makeda’s Cookies in Memphis, Tennessee on Wednesday. A video obtained exclusively by The Sun appears to show Young Dolph’s arm sticking out of a broken window in the store.
The source wanted to remain anonymous and first shared the 44-second footage on Twitter. He said that this video was taken just before the rapper’s body was moved to the scene. The video was originally recorded via Facebook Live, and as of Wednesday night, it has been viewed more than 60,000 times on Twitter.
“Oh, my goodness, you said that Dorf is dead. They said that Dorf is dead,” the person behind the camera could be heard saying when the video was zoomed in slightly to show the arm. “I just stood here and saw this damn thing.” After a while, the police were seen urging bystanders to back off.
Then the camera zoomed in to see where the arm was hanging outside the window, only showing that it had been moved by the authorities. “I have [never] seen anything like this. Oh my God… they said it was Dolph,” said the person who spoke before the end of the video clip. Anonymous witnesses told The Sun that they heard “about 50 gunshots” at the Shell gas station across the street.
The source explained: “Just before the police and the news arrived, I was across the street and the screen recorded a live video of Young Dolph’s arm hanging out the window.” According to reports, a local rapper in Memphis was shot dead while buying cookies for his mother.
At the same time, an Airway Inn staff member who did not want to be named stated in an exclusive interview with The Sun that when they heard gunfire, they were cleaning a room in a motel opposite the crime scene.
“I only heard gunshots. We were cleaning the room and then locked ourselves in,” he said. The workers did the same thing at the laundromat next door to Makeda’s Cookies. The man, who did not want to be named, said that he was not present at the time of the incident, but one of his employees was inside.
“When she heard the gunshots, she hit the floor and avoided,” the man told The Sun. The fatal shooting on Wednesday occurred around 1 pm. By 4:30 pm, both local workers said that all directions of Airway Boulevard were blocked. “They closed everything. The airlines were closed, and roadblocks were set up in the side streets,” said the man from the laundromat. This busy street is the exit ramp of Interstate 240, which was backed up for several miles on Wednesday night. “There are about 1,000 people trying to understand what is happening,” Airway Inn employees said.
