Police have arrested and charged a man who is suspected of shooting and killing Atlanta rapper King Von.
Timothy Leeks is charged with the death of King Von, real name Dayvon Bennett, of criminal murder.
Leeks is currently in police custody at an Atlanta hospital. He is being treated for a gunshot wound.
Two off duty officers from Atlanta were working in a local hookah lounge when they saw two groups of men arguing outside the establishment. The dispute escalated to shots between the two groups before the off duty officers confronted the riflemen along with an APD officer on duty who was patrolling nearby. Shots were fired between them.
