Rapper King Von Reportedly Shot and Killed in Atlanta in the early hours of friday Nov. 6th.
Young talented hip hop star Dayvon Daquan Bennett popularly known as King Von was reported dead at the age of 26 following an altercation at an Atlanta lounge which escalated to gunfire. According to reports from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution recorded 3 dead and 3 injured.
Although the late rapper is yet to be known globally, he still held a similar place of respect to Pop Smoke, another rapper who was gunned down this year just as he was beginning to break through to the mainstream. King Von was signed to rapper Lil Durk’s record label, Only the Family and EMPIRE.
It was also reported that 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.
“That physical altercation escalated into an exchange of gunfire with those groups,” Atlanta police Deputy Chief Timothy Peek said. “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.”
The incident is currently under investigation. We will keep you updated as we get more information.
RIP King Von.
