Fans lined up outside the store recording videos of the taped-off crime scene  sharing their disbelief that the local rapper gunned down.

This was not the rapper’s, whose real name is Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., first time being targeted by shooters.

In 2017 Young Dolph was shot in the buttocks and arms when he was shot outside a shoe store in Hollywood, TMZ reported. 

Prior to that the rapper’s SUV was shot at over 100 times in Charlotte, North Carolina, leading to the arrest of rapper Black Youngsta. 

The shooting came one week after he was recorded outside the cookie shop promoting the chocolate chip cookies in a video posted to social media. 

‘All I came for is to get some Makeda’s,’ he said in the post.

The 36-year-old was born in Chicago but grew up in Memphis since he was a toddler.   

He was featured on O.T. Genasis’ 2015 hit ‘Cut It’ and known for his hit songs  ‘Major’ and ‘On the River.’

After his death was confirmed by police, tributes to the rapper began to pour in. 

Rapper Gucci Mane tweeted: ‘R. I.P. to my friend Dolph this broke my heart’

Football legend Deion Sanders remembered the rapper with a video of him celebrating a homecoming win with the Jackson State football team last month. 

‘I appreciate you @YoungDolph for blessing us my brother after our homecoming win. Our young men love ya my man.’

Producer Prentice Penny called the loss ‘tragic.’   

‘I hate hearing about Young Dolph-  it’s so unnecessary and tragic. Especially to be killed at a cookie store that was founded by a wonderful black family who named their store after a daughter they lost to Leukemia. Lets be better yall.’ he tweeted.
