Chicago rapper King Von has reportedly passed away following a shootout at an Atlanta nightclub.
According to reports, an argument between King Von and Quando Rondo’s crews escalated into a shootout, which led King Von and two others to be fatally wounded. Multiple others were injured during the incident, which took place outside of Monaco Hookah Lounge around 3 A.M.
“That physical altercation escalated into an exchange of gunfire with those groups,” said Atlanta police Deputy Chief Timothy Peek. “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.”
King Von was in critical condition when he arrived at the hospital and passed away after multiple surgeries. Last week, the 26-year-old dropped his most recent project, Welcome To O Block.
The story is still developing, so stay tuned as more information is released.
