The men who cops say gunned down Young Dolph are in custody … after a manhunt which resulted in their arrests.
23-year-old Justin Johnson was taken in by U.S. Marshals Officers Tuesday in Indiana, he’s wanted on a slew of charges out of Memphis … including first-degree murder. 32-year-old Cornelius Smith was also booked on a first-degree murder charge Tuesday, but unclear if the Marshals or Memphis PD got him.
As we reported … cops announced Wednesday Johnson was wanted for murdering Young Dolph … and Johnson went on social media Saturday to announce plans to turn himself in come Monday … which he didn’t do.
Johnson, who claims he is innocent, was on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Most Wanted list … and law enforcement says he has ties to organized crime. Smith has not yet made a public statement about his involvement in the murder.
Johnson’s a Memphis-area rapper who goes by the name Straight Drop … and he appears to have shot a music video back in the day at the same home where cops retrieved what they believe is the getaway car used the day Dolph was shot and killed.
