Back in February, Young Dolph was involved in a shootout in Charlotte where over 100 shots were fired at his SUV. Luckily, the Memphis native knew danger was looming and had spent over $600k to bulletproof his whip. After the incident, Dolph was feeling himself and released his Bulletproof album in response to the attack.
Fast forward seven months, Dolph has been reportedly involved in another shootout. Only this time, he was hit multiple times.
According to reports, Young Dolph was a target of a drive-by shooting earlier today (9/26) in Hollywood, CA.

UPDATE (9/27): Now this is good news. Yo Gotti is no longer a “person of interest” in the case. Officer Aguilar disputed the TMZ report Wednesday morning. She did say Gotti and his crew were staying at the same hotel, but it’s unclear whether any of the men involved in the fight and shooting had any connection to Dolph.
