Tip "T.I." Harris (left) has a message for Chicago gang bangers and other out-of-towners who bring death and destruction to Atlanta streets.

T.I. spoke out after Chicago gangster-turned rapper King Von (right) was gunned down outside a hookah lounge in downtown Atlanta over the weekend.

Von, real name Dayvon Bennett, 26, was shot in the side as he fought with Savannah rapper Quando Rondo, 21. Bennett was transported to Grady Hospital where he died.

Rondo's brother, Timothy Leeks, 22, was arrested and charged with Bennett's murder. He is being held without bond in the Fulton County Jail.

T.I. doesn't appreciate out-of-towners spilling blood on our immaculate streets.

He captioned an Instagram post: "Handle YOUR beefs in YOUR city. Thx in advance. - King."

An affiliate of rapper Quando Rondo was charged with the fatal shooting of rapper King Von during a brawl outside an Atlanta hookah club early Friday.

Von, born Dayvon Daquan Bennett, is one of three people shot dead and three wounded during a fight outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge in downtown Atlanta.

Police arrested Timothy Leeks, 22, who allegedly shot Bennett who was fighting with Quando, real name Tyquian Terrel Bowman, 21.

Leeks, aka Lul Timm (pictured right), was then shot and wounded in the leg by another man. Leeks was arrested by Atlanta police at Grady Hospital where he went to seek treatment for his leg wound.

"The homicide of Bennett is closed with this arrest," Atlanta police spokeswoman Marla Jean Rooker told AJC.com.

Video footage from the club shows Bennett laying mortally wounded in the street with a gunshot wound to his left side.

Bennett's chain was designed by Ice Box, a premium jewelry store located in the Buckhead neighborhood on Atlanta's northwest side.

The chain signifies O-Block, the notorious 6400 block of South Martin Luther King Drive on Chicago's South Side. It is considered the most dangerous block in all of Chicago, and it is where Michelle Obama lived as a child.

The block is named after Gangster Disciples member Odee Perry, 20, who was shot and killed by Tooka gang member Gakirah "KI" Barnes when she was only 13.

Years after killing Perry (pictured left), 17-year-old Barnes (pictured right) was shot nine times while walking to a girlfriend's house for lunch on April 11, 2014.

Bennett was named as the triggerman in her death, but he was never charged.

Asian Da Brat reportedly regrets saying she only dates men with at least 3 bodies. "Body" is slang for a murder victim or murdering someone.

The Instagram model and aspiring rapper, who is formerly known as Asian Doll, sparked furious debate online when she tweeted her unusual preference in men last month.

The 23-year-old Sagittarius, born Misharron Jamesha Allen, said she won't speak to a man unless he's a killer. And not just any killer -- a serial killer.

"Please have at least 3 body's [sic] before you talk to me Boy I like killers," she tweeted.

But friends say she had a change of heart as she mourns her ex-boyfriend, gangster-turned rapper King Von, who was shot and killed in Atlanta early Friday. They broke up sometime in August.

She tweeted on Friday: "I wanna die 2 Shid it feel like I'm dead already."

Friends say she now regrets glorifying gang bangers and killers.

Von King, who was born Dayvon Daquan Bennett, was shot during a street fight with rival rapper and gang member Quando Rondo outside a hookah lounge around 3 a.m.

Friends transported Bennett to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

A woman was tasered on a Spirit Airlines plane during a brawl over face masks. Video footage recorded by another passenger shows a woman in a striped shirt throwing punches at passengers who complained about her not wearing a mask.

The woman, later identified as Nyasy Veronique Payne, was tasered by police who boarded the plane after it landed in San Juan, Puerto Rico from Newark, New Jersey on Sunday.

Payne, who wore a mask under her chin, was traveling with a female companion who is seen in the video attempting to break up the fight.

"Stop! Stop! Calm down! she is heard screaming in the video. Payne is seen climbing on seats and swimming wildly at a man in a white T-shirt.

The other passengers described the male-identified lesbian as "aggressive, hostile and defiant" during the flight.

Payne was arrested and booked into jail, where she is being held on $150,000 bail.

Fights over face masks have become a common occurrence on domestic and international commercial flights amid the coronavirus outbreak.

All U.S. based airlines require passengers to wear face masks over their noses and mouths throughout the duration of the flight.

A Florida judge sentenced a teenager to 25 years in prison for fatally shooting a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office K-9 dog, and other charges.

Jhamal Paskel, 19, previously pleaded guilty to felony charges including killing a police dog, armed carjacking and two counts of kidnapping,

Black Twitter expressed outrage that a Black teenager received prison time for shooting a dog, while Breonna Taylor's killers still walk free.

According to News4Jax, Paskel carjacked two women on Sept. 20, 2018, and forced one of them to drive as he held her at gunpoint.

The car was equipped with an OnStar system, and police tracked the vehicle to Interstate 10 near Cecil Commerce Parkway.

Paskel bailed out of the car and fled on foot with K-9 Fang in hot pursuit. Officers heard three gunshots and K-9 Fang yelped before collapsing on the ground.

"I heard two gunshots back to back followed by a third. In between two and three, I heard Fang yelp, and soon as I came over the embankment, I kind of saw him coming to rest after falling and being shot," the dog's handler Officer Matt Herrera told News4Jax.

According to News4Jax, the Florida Legislature passed a law in 2019 to increase killing a police dog or horse to a second-degree felony and raised the maximum sentence from five years to 15 years.

A disgraced former NYPD police officer who forced his way into a Black woman's apartment was ordered to pay her $1 million.

Michael Reynolds, who is white, was in a drunken stupor the night he forced his way into Conese Haliburton's apartment.

Haliburton filed a civil suit against Reynolds who quit the police force in shame earlier this year.

The incident happened on July 9, 2018. Reynolds, 27, had attended a bachelor party for a fellow NYPD officer when he was caught on surveillance video breaking into Haliburton's apartment at 2:30 a.m.

The footage captured him calling Haliburton and her family "f***ing ni__ers," according to MSNBC.

"I'll break every bone in your neck!" he yelled, before running back to his Airbnb rental.

Reynolds later confessed that he confused Haliburton's address with the Airbnb rental that he and his friends were staying at next door.

Haliburton said Reynolds and his friends were laughing and claiming they had "immunity" because of their jobs, according to reports.

Reynolds was sentenced to just 15 days in jail after pleading guilty to assault and trespassing charges in January.

He quit his job in disgrace earlier this year. "I'm absolutely sorry I said that word. I'm very remorseful. It's cost me my job, my life, everything," he said in court at the time.

Acting Deputy Commissioner for Public Information Devora Kaye told News 4 Reynolds will not "receive pension or health benefits, nor will he be allowed to carry a firearm."

"His actions are wholly inconsistent with the values and standards the New York City Police Department expects and demands of its officers."

A Detroit man is accused of stealing unemployment benefits and flaunting his luxury lifestyle in photos on Instagram.

Andre Taylor Jr., of Farmington Hills, was indicted Wednesday and accused of stealing unemployment benefits intended for Detroit residents who lost their jobs during the coronavirus outbreak.

Taylor, 27, who used the Instagram handle @_bigjuno, is accused of defrauding the Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency and credit card companies and going on shopping sprees with the stolen loot.

Taylor stole the identities of area residents and filed for unemployment debit cards starting in April, during the early weeks of the pandemic, according to the Detroit News.

The debit cards were mailed to Taylor's home and to the homes of relatives, prosecutors said. He is accused of paying cash bribes to mail carriers to give him the debit cards and obtain the names of people who lived along their mail routes, prosecutors said in the indictment.

Taylor used the debit cards to purchase expensive clothing, shoes, jewelry and luxury cars, then shared photos of his substantial stolen wealth on Instagram.

He was arrested in Los Angeles in June and charged with wire fraud, mail fraud and aggravated identity theft.

At the time of his arrest, he told federal agents he had assets totaling $1,800 and worked at a Novi construction company in Detroit, earning about $400 per week, according to court paperwork.

He was released on bond and ordered to stay in Detroit, avoid committing any more crimes and he can't be in possession of firearms.

Two sisters who stabbed a store guard 27 times for asking them to wear masks will be held in jail without bond pending trial.

The 32-year-old victim is hospitalized in critical condition, a police spokeswoman told ABC News.

Jessica Hill, 21, and Jayla Hill, 18, were arrested at the scene of the bloody attack and both were treated for lacerations on their hands.

The incident took place at Snipes shoe store on Chicago's West Side on Sunday evening. The sisters entered the store and were asked by the guard to wear masks and use hand sanitizer placed at the front of the store for incoming customers.

But the women refused both requests and an argument ensued. One of the sisters began filming the 6-foot-5, 270-pound security guard on her mobile phone, prompting him to grab the phone.

Jessica Hill hit the guard with a trash can and punched him in the face. She then allegedly pulled a knife from her back pocket and stabbed the victim repeatedly while Jayla Hill held him by his hair.

He managed to break free and -- despite his many wounds -- was able to hold both sisters until police arrived.

The incident was captured on the store’s security cameras, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The victim was stabbed 27 times in his chest, back and arms.

During Tuesday's bond hearing, the women's court-appointed attorney said the stabbing was "self-defense," adding both women suffered from bipolar disorder.
