But He Was Turning His Life Around!

An up-and-coming Chicago rapper was one of three men killed Friday morning when a fight outside a downtown Atlanta nightclub escalated to gunfire, and police working in the area attempted to intervene.

Investigators believe King Von, whose real name was Dayvon Bennett, was fatally wounded in the parking lot of the Monaco Hookah Lounge on Trinity Avenue prior to the officers’ involvement, according to Atlanta police. The GBI has not confirmed that account and is still working to determine who fired the fatal rounds that killed the rapper and two other unidentified men.

.... Bennett was arrested in Atlanta last year along with Lil Durk, whose real name is Durk Derrick Banks, following a February shooting outside The Varsity that left a man seriously injured, AJC.com previously reported.
He was charged in June 2019 with aggravated assault, criminal attempt to commit murder, participating in criminal street gang activity, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, Fulton County Jail records show. Less than three months after his release, he was arrested again by Atlanta police on an aggravated battery charge.

Rock stars, back in the day, did drugs and the worst crimes that they did involved trashing hotel rooms. But rappers seem to think there is some glory in getting into gunfights. What is the allure of living as though they are in a 21st Century equivalent of an 1880s Arizona boom town? Bullets don't care whether some dude is "up and coming". A fes seconds transformed him from "up and coming" into "dead and on a slab."

This guy, who was no stranger to acting the fool, got into a beef with a bunch of people outside of a hookah lounge at 3 in the morning? And the rest is a shock, somehow?

This episode was a classic "stupid people in stupid places doing stupid things."
