Gucci Mane reunites with young cousin, killed in shooting

CNN’s Max Foster has the latest details in the search for three suspects in rapper Young Dolph’s murder.

(CNN) – More than a week after their rapper cousin was shot to death on a Memphis street, rappers Gucci Mane and Usher were reunited Wednesday in Atlanta after Gucci Mane was released from jail.

Young Dolph was one of six people killed in a shooting in the Tennessee city around 4:30 a.m. on December 1.

Memphis police released photos Wednesday of three suspects who they believe were involved in the shooting.

One of the suspects is described as a black man wearing a red hoodie, grey sweatpants and a dark cap. Another is a black man wearing a gray hoodie, navy blue sweatpants and dark sneakers. The third is a black man wearing a white hoodie, grey sweatpants and black shoes.

Multiple other people were also shot and injured in the incident, but were not struck by gunfire.

Police said Dolph, whose real name is Adolph Thornton Jr., attended a party in the 2000 block of Purvis Street in Memphis, before getting into a fight outside with two men. One of the men allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired several shots at Dolph’s car, before running away.

Dolph, along with his three bodyguards, died after the bullets struck their cars. No arrests have been made.

“He was one of the most decent human beings I’ve ever known, a wonderful husband, father, brother, friend,” said Gucci Mane, who goes by his birth name of Radric Davis, on Instagram. “Please turn yourself in, we are seeking justice, pray for us, he will need you.”

“A senseless loss of life, it’s a shame. Maybe there will be some closure,” added Usher, who recently announced he is planning to have a third child.

The rapper Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, and his wife Keyshia Ka’oir posted this statement about Young Dolph:
