US: Upcoming Rapper, King Von Shot Dead

Emerging Chicago rapper King Von has been identified as one of three people shot and killed in Atlanta yesterday.

The Atlanta Police Department said, during an altercation that involved both on- and off-duty police officers who were attempting to break up a fight.

King Von, born Dayvon Bennett, 26, was among two groups of men who began arguing outside of the Monaco Hookah Lounge, near downtown, around 3:20 a.m., leading to gunfire, the authorities said in a statement later on Friday.

Two off-duty Atlanta police officers were working security at the establishment, and an on-duty officer was patrolling nearby, they said. Two of the officers confronted the shooters, leading to additional shots fired.

The police said that three people were discovered at the scene with gunshot wounds and transported to the hospital, while three others, including King Von, left the scene and were taken to the hospital by private vehicles. No officers were injured in the shooting, the police said.
