Written by on November 11, 2020

A 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged in the shooting death of 26-year-old Chicago rapper King Von.

The alleged shooter is Timothy Leakes, the older brother of Von’s former best friend, Quando Rondo.

Von was shot and killed during a shootout in the parking lot of the Monaco Hookah Lounge in downtown Atlanta, GA.

A video of the shooting was shared to social media and led to the arrest of Leaks, who can allegedly be seen in the video with Quando Rondo exchanging fire with members of Von’s entourage.

Two police officers with the Atlanta Police Department were also involved. One was off-duty and working security at the club, and the other was on duty and patrolling nearby.

Tributes have continued to flood social media as the hip-hop community mourns the loss of yet another talented young star.

Our prayers are with his family at this time.
