The Memphis Police Department has named two more men as persons of interest in the murder of rapper Young Dolph.

Devin Burns, 26, and Joshua Taylor, 26, are both wanted by MPD. There is a $2,000 reward set for each arrest.

Justin Johnson, 23, and 32-year-old Cornelius Smith have been charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, employment of a firearm and theft of property over $10,000. 

Shundale Barnett was charged with being an accessory after allegedly helping Johnson flee to Indiana and criminal attempt to commit first-degree murder. 

He was accidentally released from custody on Jan. 21 and Clay County Sheriff Paul Harden says they do not know his whereabouts.

“On Jan. 11, Mr. Shundale Barnett was brought to the Clay County Jail by the Indiana State Police from an arrest on I-70. He was booked in the Clay County Jail on an outstanding warrant from Shelby County, Tennessee,” Harden said. “We contacted Shelby County and held him on their warrant. And we were contacted on Jan. 21 and they told us that they were no longer wanting to come and pick up Mr. Barnett and that we were to release him at that time.”
