Chicago rapper, King Von has died at 26 after being gunned down in a shooting involving police and two groups in Atlanta, Georgia.
He was reportedly shot after a shooting broke out outside Atlanta’s Monaco Hookah Lounge at 3am on Friday morning between two groups.
Initial reports said that Von was in critical condition after the shooting, but his best friend and producer, ChopSquad DJ, has confirmed his passing on Instagram.
My heart can’t take this. No bro. Why you. Why bro. Please just FaceTime me bro. Why they had to take you. Ima see you again this shit ain’t over. It’s far from over. We still just getting started. RIP my Bestfriend. The only n***a to listen to me word for word from day 1. We sat on FaceTime for hours making songs together. Every bar had a meaning snd every song was a part of our soul. Every moment meant something and to grow wit you made me feel like I was a real producer. I love you bro, King Von.
According to TMZ, three people, including King Von, were killed in the shooting. DJ Akademiks said King Von’s manager was also in the shooting but survived and remains in hospital.
Reports say local authorities had been called to the club twice over a 24-hour period to investigate shootings, though there is zero evidence the two incidents are related.
During the early Friday morning shooting, two off-duty cops who were working security are said to have tried to intervene, ultimately exchanging gunfire with as-yet-unidentified individuals.
Speaking, Atlanta police Deputy Chief, Timothy Peek, expressed;
This physical altercation escalated into an exchange of gunfire with those groups.
Two police officers who were working at that particular club, or lounge, noticed the altercation and engaged some of the people involved. There was an exchange of gunfire with police as well.
Several artistes including Chance The Rapper, Davido, Calboy, Dreezy, Joey Purp, have taken to social media to share their condolences.
