After the shooting, three law enforcement officials confirmed Dolph's death to Fox 13.

Yo Gotti, 36, who was rumored to have had rap beef with Dolph for several years, shared a mysterious post on his Instagram story hours before the shooting.

...Good Morning. Don't value da things you don't have over the things you do,... Yo Gotti posted on IG.

Yo Gotti and Dolph allegedly exchanged subtle disses on tracks towards each other and spoke about one another in interviews.

The rappers were raised in Memphis and became competitors once Dolph rose on the Southern hip hop scene.

It's unclear why the two began feuding, but tensions continued to mount in subtle ways.

Police dismissed reports that the fine dining restaurant had been ...shot at... following Dolph’s death.

Dolph was also reportedly in rap beef with Soulja Boy, who were at odds on social media over money and their careers.

As fears of possible retaliation shootings spread, Memphis Police Department chief Cerelyn C.J. Davis issued an extraordinary advisory to city residents on Wednesday.

As of Thursday morning, no arrests have been made in connection with the shooting, Memphis police told The Sun.

Police have not released any information about a suspect/s.

However, photos of the alleged gunmen quickly spread on social media on Thursday, showing two suspects wearing face masks and gray sweatpants, as well as dark hoodies.

One of the men was wearing a hat, while the other had his hood up.

The pair are also both holding weapons - one appearing to be a pistol and the other a Draco AK-47.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the front of Young Dolph's car behind the two men.

Footage exclusively obtained by The Sun appears to show Dolph's arm hanging out one of the store's broken windows.

The source, who wishes to remain anonymous and first shared the 44-second footage on Twitter, said the video was taken just moments before the rapper's body was removed from the scene.

The video, which was initially recorded through Facebook Live, had amassed more than 60,000 views on Twitter by Wednesday evening.

...Oh my God ya'll, they say Dolph dead. They say Dolph dead,... the person behind the camera is heard saying as the video zooms in slightly to show the arm.

...I was just standing out here just seeing this s**t....

Moments later, police are seen urging onlookers to back up.

The camera then zooms in on where the arm was seen hanging out the window, only to show authorities had moved it.

...I 'have ' never seen no s**t like this. Oh my God. ... They said that's Dolph,... the person talking says before the video clip concludes.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the anonymous witness said they heard ...approximately 50 gunshots... while at the Shell gas station across the street.

...I was across the street right before the cops, and the news arrived, and screen recorded a live video of Young Dolph's arm hanging out the window,... the witness explained.

Meanwhile, an Airway Inn worker, who wished not to be identified, exclusively told The Sun that they were cleaning rooms in a motel across the street from the crime scene when they heard the gun blasts.

...All I heard were gunshots. We were cleaning the rooms, and we locked ourselves inside,... he said.

Dolph was related to late rapper Juice WRLD, who passed away following an accidental overdose.
