CEO Teezy, who was named a “person of interest” in the 2021 murder of Memphis rapper Young Dolph, was believed to be shot and killed on Tuesday (June 13) in the Orange Mound neighborhood of Memphis.
The Memphis Police Department responded to a “man down” call at Spottswood Avenue near Buntyn Street at approximately 12:56 p.m. local time the following day.
On arrival, officers found a man who was dead from gunshot wounds at the scene. So far, the man’s identity has yet to be revealed, and it’s yet to be confirmed if CEO Teezy was indeed the victim of the gunplay.
CEO Teezy and another man, Devin Burns, were named as “Persons of Interest”
in the Young Dolph murder case by the Memphis Police Department.
Burns was collared in February 2022 on an unrelated charged and was charged with four counts of aggravated assault and one count of property theft in the amount of $10,000-$60,000. His bond was set at $100,000.
Teezy was still sought for questioning regarding the case, and the nature of their involvement remains unconfirmed by the police.
Dolph was shot and killed back in November 2021, in Memphis. This occurred while he was inside Makeda’s Homemade Cookies, as he was frequent visitor of this south Memphis business.
Dolph was reportedly buying cookies for his mother. As a result, two masked armed men noticed his cameo Corvette Stingray, Ana quickly fired their guns into Makeda’s. Dolph was pronounced dead at the scene.
Last week, 26-year-old Jermarcus Johnson pleaded guilty to three counts of accessory after the fact in Dolph’s murder.
While Johnson had no role in Dolph’s killing he was accused of helping alleged shooters Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith after they did the deed. Justin Johnson and Smith are yet to go to trial.
An autopsy revealed that Young Dolph had 22 gunshot wounds from bullet entries and exits. Some wounds were sustained in the forehead and back.
