The Charges Against King Von Killer Lul Timm Are Dropped
Lul Timm's Murder Charge Has Been Dropped
In a statement to XXL on Sunday (Aug. 20), Lul Timm's attorney, Noah Pines, confirmed that felony murder charges were dropped against Lul Timm, born Timothy Leeks. "The case against Mr. Leeks was dismissed prior to ever being indicted," the statement reads.
As previously reported, Lul Timm was arrested and charged with felony murder in King Von's death on Nov. 6, 2020. Von, born Dayvon Bennett, was shot and killed following a fight that escalated into a shooting outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge in downtown Atlanta.
According to authorities, a fight broke out between a group of men Von was with and another group of people, including Quando Rondo and Lul Timm, in the parking lot around 3 a.m. The groups then exchanged gunfire. After the dust settled, six people were shot, three of whom died from their wounds. Two police officers reportedly attempted to intervene following the gun battle but were not injured.
The Atlanta Police Department would later release a statement confirming that King Von was one of the deceased victims.
In March of 2021, Lul Timm was released from Fulton County Jail after posting a $100,000 bond. Although he was set free in this case, Lul Timm still faces other pending charges. According to reports, the embattled rapper was hit with multiple drug and traffic charges back in October of 2022, after a high-speed car chase with police in Georgia.
