Horror Young Dolph video reveals harrowing moments after rapper was shot dead outside Memphis cookie shop
THIS is the horrifying footage that reveals the moments that unfolded after Young Dolph was fatally shot dead at a Memphis cookie shop.
Rapper Young Dolph, whose real name is Adolph Robert Thornton Jr, was shot dead at Makeda's Cookies in Memphis, Tennessee, on Wednesday.
Footage exclusively obtained by The Sun appears to show Young Dolph's arm hanging out one of the store's broken windows.
The source, who wishes to remain anonymous and first shared the 44-second footage on Twitter, said the video was taken just moments before the rapper's body was removed from the scene.
The video, which was originally recorded through Facebook Live, had amassed more than 60,000 views on Twitter by Wednesday evening.
"Oh my God ya'll, they say Dolph dead. They say Dolph dead," the person behind the camera is heard saying as the video zooms in slightly to show the arm.
"I was just standing out here just seeing this s**t."
Moments later police are seen urging onlookers to back up.
The camera then zooms in on where the arm was seen hanging out the window, only to show it had been moved by authorities.
"I [have] never seen no s**t like this. Oh my God. … They said that's Dolph," the person talking says before the video clip concludes.

The anonymous witness told The Sun they heard "approximately 50 gunshots" while at the Shell gas station across the street.
"I was across the street right before the cops and the news arrived and screen recorded a live video of Young Dolph's arm hanging out the window," the source explained.
The local Memphis rapper was reportedly gunned down while buying cookies for his mom.
Meanwhile, an Airway Inn worker, who wished not to be identified, told The Sun in an exclusive interview that they were cleaning rooms in a motel across the street from the crime scene when they heard the gun blasts.
"All I heard were gunshots. We were cleaning the rooms and we locked ourselves inside," he said.
Workers did the same thing in the laundromat next door to Makeda's Cookies.
The man, who also wished not to be named in the story, said he wasn't there when the crime happened but one of his employees was inside.
"She hit the floor and ducked for cover when she heard the gunshots," the man told The Sun.
Wednesday's fatal shooting took place around 1p.m.
By 4:30 p.m., both local workers said Airway Boulevard was blocked off in all directions.
"They shut down everything. Airway is closed and the side streets are barricaded," the man from the laundromat said.
The busy street is an exit ramp from Interstate 240, which was backed up for miles Wednesday evening.
"There [are] about 1,000 people trying to see what's going on," the Airway Inn employee said.
