    Los Angeles police confirmed to FOX13 that 43-year-old Corey McClendon was booked Wednesday on a charge of attempted murder. 

    He was held on a $1 million bond, and was later released Thursday.

    Reports state a fight broke out at a Hollywood hotel between several men before the shooting. 

    32-year-old Young Dolph, Adolph Thornton, Jr., was struck. The "Preach" rapper was reportedly hit in one of his arms and his buttocks. He was listed in critical, but stable condition.

    Another Memphis rapper, Yo Gotti, was previously named as a person of interest in the case, but is no longer considered a person of interest. 

    McClendon has been arrested many times in Shelby County. His first arrest in Shelby County dates back to 1994 for possession of crack cocaine with intent to sell. 

    Yo Gotti and Corey McClendon were both charged in connection with a brawl that led to a shooting outside a club in 2010. Five people were hurt, including a security guard.

    He was also arrested in 2016 for driving on a suspended license and possession of a controlled substance.

    FOX13 also learned he had warrants out for his arrest in Georgia.
