Rising rap star King Von was killed after a shootout at a hookah lounge in Atlanta, GA

ATLANTA, (BM) – A shootout in front of a nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia is about to escalate in new protests in the United States at a time when the country is waiting for the final results of the presidential election, learned BulgarianMilitary.com quoting the English online edition of the Guardian.

Davon Daquan Bennett, known as rapper King Von in the United States, died of his wounds after a shootout in front of a nightclub. The information about the participants in the shooting will be thoroughly investigated by the police authorities, as it turns out that two police officers may be involved in the incident.

Officials have so far avoided co-ordinating the alleged involvement of the two Atlanta police officers, claiming that the rapper died in a shootout between the two groups of men prior to police arrival. “Our investigators believe Mr Bennett was shot during the initial shootout between the two groups of men before police responded and tried to stop the shooting,” authorities said in a statement.

Authorities confirmed the following information that the incident began at around 3.20 am in front of a Monaco hookah lounge in Atlanta, where two Atlanta police officers worked as an “additional job”. They were outside the saloon when the incident began, which eyewitnesses said erupted and escalated in a very short time. One of the two officers “collided” at the exit with the alleged perpetrator of the crime, according to the official version of the authorities in Atlanta Georgia.

Bennett was immediately transported to the nearest hospital in his private car but died of his wounds. Authorities say three others were killed in the incident, authorities said. A total of three people are said to have died, including Bennett. At the same time, there are three injured men who were immediately hospitalized.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation will conduct the investigation and determine what happened and whether the two police officers were involved in the incident, to what extent, what their involvement was, and so on. Officials confirmed that the two officers were not injured in the incident. “GBI will continue its independent investigation,” the bureau said in a statement. “Once the investigation is complete, it will be handed over to the Fulton County Attorney for review.”

In addition to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Atlanta police are also involved in the investigation and will help establish the timeline of events that escalated tensions and who Bennett’s killers were.

Gazi Shami, who reportedly founded Bennett’s record company, wrote on Instagram: “My heart is heavy. Another young rising star disappeared too soon. I pray for your family, brother”. He also added,” We need to find a better way. There is too much senseless violence. That needs to stop. God help us.”
