McClendon, a friend of chart-topping rapper (and Young Dolph rival) Yo Gotti, had been held for 48 hours on $1 million bond as a suspect in the daylight shooting of Young Dolph, 32, on Tuesday in front of a prominent Hollywood hotel.
“Under California law, if you are arrested and booked and no charges are filed within 48 hours, you have to be released,” Risling said. He said police must gather further evidence, “come back to us with a case and then (the district attorney) will decide whether to file charges.”
Young Dolph was shot in the parking valet area of the Loews Hollywood Hotel.
He became embroiled in an argument with three men, which turned into a fistfight.
When the rapper fell to the ground, one of the unknown assailants drew a handgun and shot Young Dolph several times, striking him in the buttocks and the arm.
Meanwhile, police remained confident that they will make interest in the shooting. ￼ The cops claimed they have crystal-clear surveillance footage of the incident, and they now believe it was not a chance encounter, and that Young Dolph could have been targeted intentionally.
