Adolph Robert Thornton Jr., better known by his stage name Young Dolph, a deeply skilled Memphis rapper with deadpan bravado and a fierce independent streak who emerged as one of hip-hop’s most promising new stars in recent years, was killed Wednesday in a shooting in his hometown. He was 36. The news, which had been reported by Fox 13 Memphis, was confirmed by the mayor of Memphis, Jim Strickland, who wrote on Twitter, “The tragic shooting death of rap artist Young Dolph serves as another reminder of the pain that violent crime brings with it.”

Mayor Strickland added, “To honor all victims of violent crime, I ask for calm in our city to allow the Memphis Police Department to do their duty to capture those responsible.”

The Memphis Police Department said a fatal shooting occurred at 2370 Airways Boulevard, the site of Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies, a bakery that Young Dolph had frequented.
