More details are emerging about the suspect in the murder of Young Dolph.
On Wednesday, police issued an arrest warrant for Justin Johnson, a 23-year-old Tennessee man who is accused of fatally shooting Dolph in November.
According to TMZ, Johnson is a Memphis-area rapper who goes by the name Straight Drop.

Shortly after Dolph was killed, detectives tracked down the getaway car, a white Mercedes-Benz E-Class coupe, in the driveway of a Memphis-area home, just three miles from the site of the shooting.
As it turns out, the same home where the car was found can be seen in the background of Johnson’s music video for “Going Straight In.” The video was released to YouTube four days after two masked gunmen opened fire on Dolph while he was at a Memphis bakery on Nov. 17. The killers fled in the white Mercedes.
Johnson, who is wanted for first-degree murder, has been added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s “Most Wanted” list. A $15,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
