The man suspected of killing Memphis rap legend Young Dolph (right) was captured in Indiana by the U.S. Marshals Service.

“Following a coordinated investigation by the U.S. Marshals, Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force and the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force, Justin Johnson was captured today around 3:00 PM (CST) in Indiana,” according to a US Marshal’s release.

Johnson found himself hiding in Indiana, a few days after he dropped a music video showing off his mumble-rap abilities.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Marshals announced Johnson as a person of interest and offered a $ 15,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

Johnson, 23, promised to report to police Monday, Jan. 10. Instead, he dropped a music video.

Johnson, who uses the rap name “Straight Drop”, wrote on his Instagram story last week:

“Hand me over on Monday @ 201. I’m innocent. I’m back faster than you can blink.” He also had a message for bloggers: “Next time post the REAL .. BS blogs.”

Another suspect, Cornelius Smith was transferred to Shelby County Jail from DeSoto County Jail, where he had been detained since his Dec. 9 arrest.

A joint press conference with U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller, Memphis Police Chief CJ Davis and Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich will be held tomorrow.
