Young Dolph was fatally shot in November 2021 at Makeda's Cookies on Airways Boulevard in broad daylight, three suspects have so far been arrested in connection to the murder.
Last week, the third suspect, 43-year-old Hernandez Govan, was arrested and charged with Dolph's murder. Authorities say Govan is the one who “solicited the murder, leading Justin Johnson, a rapper known by the name of Straight Dropp, and Cornelius Smith” to shoot and kill Dolph, Fox 13 reported.
Govan happens to be the father of Destinee “Lotta Cash Desto” Govan, a 25-year-old rapper who was shot to death in Houston September this year. She was signed to Lil Uzi Vert at the time and the latter even attended her funeral. Govan mourned his daughter's demise on Facebook, blaming her death on his “lifestyle” and even went on to “apologize” to her.
