Rapper Lul Tim, real name Timothy Leeks, is no longer facing felony murder charges in connection with the November 2020 shooting of King Von.
Lul Tim's attorney Noah Pines confirmed the charges against his client were dropped in a statement provided to XXL. "The case against Mr. Leeks was dismissed prior to ever being indicted," Pines said.
The rapper was arrested and charged with felony murder one day after King Von was fatally shot in Atlanta on November 6, 2020. Authorities said that a fight broke out between two groups of men, one featuring Von and the other including Tim and Quando Rondo, outside of the Monaco Hookah Lounge in the early hours of the morning. The two groups exchanged gunfire, leaving three people dead and three injured.
Lul Tim was granted $100,000 bond in March 2021, but he is currently facing several drug and traffic charges relating to an October 2022 arrest following a car chase with police.
In a since-deleted post shared on the social media network formerly known as Twitter, King Von's girlfriend at the time of his death, Asian Doll, responded to the murder charges being dropped. "Because the police said Tim ain't kill him the police did," she wrote.
After the charges against him were dropped, Lul Tim shared a video for a new song entitled "Left a Stain" in which he refers to"beat[ing]" the case. It also shows him getting his house arrest ankle monitor removed.
