Less than two months after the fatal shooting of Young Dolph, an arrest warrant has been issued for a man wanted in connection to his murder.

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, Justin Johnson has been named as one of the suspects. The 23-year-old is wanted for first-degree murder for allegedly shooting and killing the Memphis rapper on Nov. 17.

Johnson is about 5-foot-8 and 190 pounds and has the name “Jaiya” tattooed on his right arm, authorities said Wednesday.

U.S. Marshals, along with Memphis Police and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, is offering a combined reward of $15,000 for information leading to his arrest. Johnson, who is considered armed and dangerous, has also been added to TBI’s “Most Wanted” list.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to call U.S. Marshals at (901) 275-4562, (901) 601-1575, or (731) 571-0280, or submit a tip online.

Dolph, born Adolph Robert Thornton Jr., was killed after two men exited a white Mercedes and fired shots into a Memphis bakery where Dolph was buying cookies. He was 36.
