Los Angeles police on Wednesday arrested a suspect accused of shooting rapper Young Dolph near Hollywood Boulevard the previous day.

Corey McClendon was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder for the shooting that took place on North Highland Avenue, resulting in a portion of the busy tourist spot being closed, Los Angeles police confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 43-year-old McClendon is being held on $1 million bail, according to jail records. 

The rapper was shot multiple times around 1:25 p.m. at Loews Hollywood Hotel after an altercation with multiple other men, police said. He is expected to survive.
