US rapper Young Dolph has reportedly been rushed to hospital after being shot in broad daylight at a busy Hollywood shopping area.
The Chicago-born star, 32, was allegedly gunned down outside the Loews Hotel near Hollywood Boulevard – where a number of high profile red carpet events are held – on Tuesday afternoon.
After being shot, he is thought to have staggered to the nearby Shoe Palace.
The LAPD told Mirror Celebs that they were unable to give out the name of the victim but confirmed a shooting had taken place.
They added that one person was detained but no arrests have been made so far.
According to the LAPD, the victim is in critical condition in hospital but is expected to live.
A section of the busy tourist spot was shut down following the incident.
It’s not the first time the rapper – whose real name is Adolph Thornton Jr. – has had a brush with death. Back in February, he was on his way to his concert when more than 100 rounds were fired at his car. – Daily Mirror
