The Memphis Police Department has revealed the identities of the three suspects in the shooting near Young Dolph’s memorial, as well as their charges.
Just day one day following the murder of Young Dolph, there was a drive-by shooting next door to the late rapper’s memorial site at Makeda’s Homemade Cookies. As previously reported, one man was shot in the leg during the attack, and he is expected to make a full recovery. Still, the shooting must be troubling for the residents of Memphis because memorials shouldn’t be dangerous places for people to gather at.
At the time of the shooting, Memphis police were already on the scene, and they were able to immediately pursue the Nissan that had just fired a shot into the crowd of people at Young Dolph’s memorial. After crashing the vehicle on Kerr Ave and Mississippi Blvd and tossing their handguns, the suspects were quickly apprehended by the officers.
Police have now identified the three men arrested and charged in connection to the shooting. According to Memphis’ WREG, the detained suspects include 23-year-old Terrance Jones, 19-year-old Jailon Nelvis, and 22-year-old Tavis McQueen, and they have all reportedly been charged with aggravated assault, evading arrest, three counts of possession of prohibited weapon, two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of theft of property, and six counts of unlawful possession of a weapon.
Officers are on the scene of a shooting at 2630 Airways. One male was shot and is listed as non-critical. Officers immediately detained two suspects, and a third was detained at Kerr and Mississippi after a brief pursuit.
The cause of this shooting is under investigation.

At this time, local police attest that there is no evidence that suggests that the Jones, Nelvis, and McQueen investigation is connected to Young Dolph‘s murder, and the three young men are currently scheduled to appear in court on Monday, November 22.
It has become all too much common place with the violence in the communities and there clearly is an emergent need to curb the senseless violence in the cities. Hopefully, Young Dolph receives proper justice for his passing.
