PHOTO: Another man, Jermarcus Johnson, is wanted for conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Young Dolph

Another suspect has been named in the killing of rapper Young Dolph, according to the Memphis Police Department (MPD).

Jermarcus Johnson is wanted for Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder.He is described as 5′7″, 153 pounds, medium complexion, with dreadlocks, police said.

Sources say he is the half-brother to Justin Johnson, who has already been indicted in the murder.

He is currently in jail at 201 Poplar, although he has requested to be moved to the Shelby County penal farm.

In January 2022, two men were arrested and charged in connection with the shooting. Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith have been indicted on first-degree murder, attempted-first degree murder, weapons charges and theft charges. They were also charged Thursday with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Memphis Police told The Commercial Appeal, part of the USA TODAY Network, the investigation into the killing is ongoing.

The Commercial Appeal received two of the three pages of Govan's indictment Monday, the missing one being the conspiracy charge. Mulroy did not comment about the case specifically, but said it is standard practice to not release an indictment to the public if someone named is not in custody. Mulroy did not say whether or not that is the reason the indictment has not been made publicly available.

A judge told him that would be up to the Shelby County Sheriff.

Anyone with information on Jemarcus Johnson’s whereabouts should call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH. You will be given a personal ID number, and your identification will remain completely anonymous. You can also submit your tip online here.

If an arrest is made, you could be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.00 from Crime Stoppers. Young Dolph was shot and killed just over a year ago on Nov. 17, 2021, while he was inside Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies on Airways Boulevard.

An autopsy report revealed he suffered 22 gunshot wounds.

Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith were indicted in January for the killing. They’re charged with a number of crimes including first-degree murder.

A third man, Hernandez Govan, is accused of planning and ordering the killing.

Govan, 43, was indicted on charges of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

He pleaded guilty Thursday to all charges, exactly one year to the day of the fatal shooting.

He’s due back in court Dec. 16. Sources say he is the half-brother to Justin Johnson, who has already been indicted in the murder.

He is currently in jail at 201 Poplar, although he has requested to be moved to the Shelby County penal farm.

Assistant district attorney for Shelby County, Tennessee, Paul Hagerman said Thursday that a conspiracy to commit first-degree murder charge has been added in the case against two men previously arrested.

In a newsletter sent out Wednesday, Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy said: "We allege that this individual (Govan) solicited the murder and put it in motion. We will continue to seek justice in this killing.”

The court appearance took place exactly a year after Young Dolph's death. Dolph, whose birth name is Adolph Thornton, Jr., was shot and killed inside Makeda's Homemade Butter Cookies in Memphis, Tennessee Nov. 17, 2021. He was 36 years old.
