It’s no secret that the late King Von was close with Lil Durk. “Twin nem” as they would refer to each other. Following the death of Von, Durk has disabled his Instagram. “Sorry, this page isn’t available,” it reads when you attempt to go on Durk’s IG.
Durk was on IG live when people in the comments were telling him that King Von was shot.
King Von sadly took his last breath, early Friday morning, after being shot and killed by 22 year-old Timothy Leeks. Von was celebrating the release of his album, Welcome to O’Block.
“Mr. Leeks is in police custody at Grady Hospital where he is undergoing treatment for a gunshot wound,” Atlanta police spokeswoman Marla Jean Rooker told XXL in a statement. “The homicide of Bennett is closed with this arrest.”
“MY TWIN GONE. I LOVE YOU BABY BRO – D ROY !!!!!,” Durk wrote under a picture he posted of King Von. Von was signed to Lil Durk’s imprint, Only The Family (OTF). Von’s first single, “Crazy Story,” was released in 2018. He released a total of three projects under OTF.
