A Third Man Shundale Barnett Has Been Arrested in Connection With the Murder of Rapper Young Dolph

It has been a couple of months since Young Dolph was tragically murdered in front of a local bakery and police have finally started to arrest the men allegedly responsible.

They have arrested two men already after the manhunt for Justin Johnson ended when he was found in Indiana. Now, according to VladTV, a third man has been arrested in connection with the murder.

Shundale Barnett is the man and he’s been charged with being an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder since he was in the car with Johnson when he was found.

Here is how the cops finally tracked down Johnson and Barnett.

Many new details emerged Wednesday at a news conference with U.S. Marshals, Memphis Police, and the Shelby County District Attorney, who updated the arrests of two suspects in the murder of Memphis rapper Young Dolph.

Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith were arrested and indicted in the November 17, 2021, killing of 36-year-old Adolph Thornton Jr., known as Young Dolph. Dolph was shot and killed at a popular cookie shop in south Memphis.

A third man, Shundale Barnett, is facing charges of accessory after the fact to first degree murder, accused of assisting Justin Johnson as he evaded law enforcement in Indiana.

In the nearly two months since Young Dolph’s shooting death, law enforcement received hundreds of tips and leads, which led to a cross-country manhunt and capture of one suspect, the charging of another suspect locally, and potentially more arrests to come.

Tuesday, we learned about Smith, a second suspected also indicted in Dolph’s murder and who was already being held in DeSoto County, Mississippi, on a separate charge.

Authorities said they’re confident Johnson and Smith are the men in a surveillance video, taken moments before Young Dolph was shot November 17th.

Authorities believe Barnett was helping Johnson while they were looking for him which has now caused him to be in jail.
