Atlanta Police have charged rapper Quando Rondo’s brother, who is currently receiving treatment at an Atlanta hospital, with felony murder in the death of Chicago rapper King Von.
Police said on Saturday afternoon that 22-year-old Timothy Leeks was hospitalized due to a gunshot wound where he was later arrested for King Von’s murder.
Timothy who is believed to be the “brother” of rapper Quando Rondo – was shot during the same incident where King Von was shot and killed. Police believe that Quando Rondo’s crew and King Von’s crew got into a shootout leading to the death of King Von.
Timothy’s arrest follows the shooting of Von and two others and was witnessed by off-duty police officers who were working an extra job at Monaco Hookah Lounge.
According to them, two groups of men started to argue with each other outside the lounge and the disagreement quickly led a gunfire exchange between the two groups. The off-duty officers confronted the men but could not diffuse the situation and more gunfire resulted.
Quando Rondo, a popular rapper affiliated with NBA Youngboy, took his brother to the hospital for his gunshot wounds. Video was captured on IG. Look:

So far, however, police have only announced a murder charge for Leeks.
