According to reports, Dolph was ambushed as he visited one of his favorite cookie shops in his hometown of Memphis. Witnesses say the rapper went into the store, and a vehicle pulled up, firing through a front window where he was ultimately killed.

The video posted online shows Dolph visiting the same cookie store just a week ago. Dolph’s attorney and friend, Scott Hall, said the rapper was scheduled to hand out turkeys Wednesday and stopped at the cookie store where he was killed before the charity event.
