Hollywood, CA – Yo Gotti affiliate Corey McClendon was booked on Wednesday (September 27) for an attempted murder charge following the Hollywood shooting of Young Dolph on Tuesday (September 26). According to USA Today, McClendon has been released without charges.
Los Angeles District Attorney office spokesman Greg Risling said the 42-year-old man was released early Friday (September 29) after prosecutors requested “further investigation” by police.
McClendon had been held for 48 hours on a $1 million bond. Risling explained that under California law, “if you are arrested and booked and no charges are filed within 48 hours, you have to be released.”
He also added that police must “come back to us with a case and then (the district attorney) will decide whether to file charges” after further investigation.
Police are still looking for two other people suspected of being involved in the altercation outside the Loews Hollywood Hotel that led to the shooting. Members of Gotti and Dolph’s entourages were both staying at the same hotel.
Following the afternoon incident, Dolph was rushed to a local hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and was listed in critical condition. He is expected to survive.
