Two men, Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith, have been charged with murder, attempted murder, and theft.

The attempted murder charges relate to Young Dolph's brother, who was also at the cookie shop at the time of the shooting.

The getaway vehicle in the shooting was stolen during a carjacking the week prior, resulting in the theft charge, according to reports.

Both men are due back in court on March 24, according to reports.

Two other men, Devin Burns and Joshua Taylor, have been named persons of interest in the incident.

Burns was arrested on February 22 and charged with four counts of aggravated assault and one count of property theft, ABC24 reports.

It is unclear what roles the two may have had in the shooting.

Barnett's arrest was announced on January 11 by US Marshals. He was being held in an Indiana jail awaiting extradition to Memphis. But jail records show that he is no longer behind bars.
