(FreshAsFrankie) Young Dolph is expected to survive after his shooting. Dolph’s condition was downgraded to critical after his operation, but authorities now state that he is expected to pull through.
Young Dolph was originally listed in stable condition following the shooting but has now been downgraded to critical condition after his operation.
According to authorities, Dolph was involved in an argument with three men outside the Loews Hollywood Hotel around 1 pm. The argument turned into a physical altercation which caused Dolph to be knocked to the ground. At that point, one of the men involved in the fight pulled out a gun and shot Dolph multiple times. All three men fled immediately afterward as Young Dolph staggered bleeding into the Shoe Palace sneaker store adjacent to the hotel.
The man who police think is the shooter fled in a Gold Escalade, which they found abandoned a block away. Police are searching for 2 black men and 1 Hispanic man they believe were involved in the fight. One man has been arrested but has not been confirmed as the shooter.
Young Dolph was involved in a shooting outside the Shoe Palace sneaker store at the Hollywood & Highland Center. Police officers were already in the area and quickly intervened to get Dolph an ambulance where he was rushed to the hospital. Dolph’s injuries are reportedly non-life threatening and he’s expected to pull through.
In February, Dolph was involved in another shooting during CIAA Weekend in Charlotte, NC. Dolph’s SUV was shot at dozens of times before the attackers sped off. Luckily, his SUV was bulletproof and he was able to walk away unscathed.
In May, Blac Youngsta turned himself in for the shooting but maintained his innocence. “”I’m innocent…I ain’t fired nothin’, I don’t know nothin’,” Youngsta stated as he walked in to turn himself in. Dolph has since bailed out and has been pursuing his music career.
