The shooters appear in the images, one holding a rifle while another wields a handgun.
So far, no suspects have been named in the shooting that killed the 36-year-old star and people are urged to call the police with any information.
Young Dolph, real name Adolph Robert Thornton Jr, was in Memphis visiting a family member with cancer and giving out turkeys for Thanksgiving when he was shot dead.
The rapper was a regular at Makeda’s Cookies, promoting their products in the days before his death.
“Young Dolph says every time he comes home he has to stop by Makeda’s Cookies,” the company posted alongside a video of the star outside the store.
Dolph had previously been the target of other shootings in the past. Back in February 2017, his SUV was reportedly shot at over 100 times while he was in Charlotte for the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) tournament weekend.
