Yesterday afternoon (Thursday, Nov. 18th), a vigil was held for Young Dolph in front of a business next door to Makeda’s Cookies. As fans paid tribute to the “On the River” rapper, however, a drive-by-shooting occurred and resulted in one non-critical injury.

In response to the matter, officers who were already at the scene proceeded to chase down a Nissan–which was later found to be stolen. After a short while, the perpetrators crashed the car, ditched their guns, and tried to flee on foot. The three men–Terrance Jones (23), Travis McQueen (22), and Jailon Nelvis (19)–were later apprehended and booked for the drive-by. Travis McQueen is listed as the shooter.
