After being arrested in 2021 for the shooting death of King Von in 2020, this Sunday Lul Tim officially got the murder charge dropped.
King Von’s death occurred during a crew dispute, where in his crew got into an altercation with Quando Rondo’s crew, leaving 3 dead and 6 injured. Lul Tim was one of the other injured parties in the altercation, allegedly also getting shot. Months later in March of 2021, Lul Tim was eventually arrested for the murder of King Von. However he was released from police custody quickly after posting the assigned $100,000 bond.
Lul Tim’s attorney told reporters on Sunday that “the case against Mr. Leeks was dismissed.” Meanwhile on social media Asian Doll, King Von’s previous girlfriend, tweeted a response to Lul Tim’s charges being dropped by saying “because the police said Tim Ian’t kill him the police did.” This tweet was quickly deleted.
The tweet likely came from speculations about a video leaked earlier this month that followed the 2020 shooting that ended in King Von’s death. The footage shows responding officers handcuffing BossTop, asking him questions and leading him away from the scene while he asks them if Von “is good.”
Quando Rondo claims that his crew responded in self-defense the night of the altercation, saying that King Von’s crew attacked them first and out of nowhere. Quando recounted the story in an interview, saying: “I’m thinking these were some regular individuals, so I’m letting this group come by. Next thing you know, a n***a hit me. Boom bow. I lie to you not. It’s like I had an out-of-body experience.”
Lul Tim seems to be minimally phased by the whole situation as he was arrested last year for unrelated drug charges and being involved in a high-speed chase with police. Just this Monday after his official release from the King Von case, he released a new single, “Left a Stain.” Clearly excited about the case being dropped, he raps “I told ‘em about my good news / I’m about to beat this case.”
