Chicago rapper King Von is dead after being shot outside of an Atlanta nightclub on Thursday.
He was 26.
While initial reports said that Von was in critical condition after the shooting, his best friend and producer, DJ On Da Beat, has confirmed his passing.
“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,” he wrote on Instagram.
According to the AJC, an altercation broke out Friday morning around 3am when an argument between two groups turned physical in the parking lot.
“That physical altercation escalated into an exchange of gunfire with those groups,” 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.”
There were two others injured in the gunfire who are said to be in stable condition. Unconfirmed rumors claim that one of the off-duty officers involved are responsible for the shot that ultimately killed King Von, however that has not been proven.
RIP King Von..
