UPDATE: After being shot by police on November 19th 2019, Simba has died (presumably from his gunshot wounds) over the weekend.

MONROE, MI -- Simba Lion, the 40-year-old man who police say was the suspect in the shooting of a pair of Monroe police officers, has died.

In a tweet sent out Monday afternoon, Michigan State Police said Lion died over the weekend. Authorities did not release any more details, other than to say the investigation continues.

Lion was named as a suspect in the Nov. 19 shooting by police, but it appears he never left the hospital after being shot by officers who returned fire at him. Lion was taken to a Toledo hospital following the incident and was listed in critical condition two weeks ago, in the last MSP update on his condition.

The two officers shot in the incident were treated and released form the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The ordeal unfolded after maintenance workers arrived at Lion’s apartment in the 700 block of Washington Street. According to WTOL, a pair of 911 calls show an argument began taking place and both the worker and Lion called 911. In one of the calls, a 911 dispatcher told Lion to holster his gun when police arrived or he would be treated as a hostile.

It is unclear what exactly happened when officers arrived, but police say Lion fired at the two officers, injuring them. More officers arrived and fire was returned at Lion, who was struck. WTOL also reports Lion was served with an eviction notice the day before the shooting took place.

The maintenance worker was with pest control workers who were spraying the apartment for cockroaches when the initial argument began.

Original mod edit: Simba is now in the hospital in critical condition after shooting two cops, only to be shot by them. On November 4th, 2019 he was notified by his landlord that he wasn't paying his rent (which was $1300, his last payment was at the beginning of October). On the 14th he got another notification to pay up. On November 18th Simba had been sued by his landlord and was passed an eviction notice around the same time.

One day later Simba got into a fight with apartment complex staff over pesticides and police were called. He shot two officers, and was wounded when police returned fire. He hasn't yet been arrested for this, but the investigation is ongoing.

On November 22, 911 calls were released to local news station WTOL, and they released both a news segment and Simba's raw 911 call. These calls can be listened to here.

The original OP follows:

“I have decided to be 19 forever.” - Simba Lion

Anyone who’s involved with anything furries probably knows that it’s a mixed bag of nuts. Some people are cool while others made you want to take a shower after you find out they exist. One of the great things about being in said community means that I get to meet some rather entertaining individuals like Simba. Now, I’m pretty certain that this individual has much more under his belt than just this, here are the highlights from my investigations:

  • Legally changed his name to “Simba Lion.”

  • Believes that Disney stole the name Simba from him, despite him legally changing his name because he loves The Lion King.

  • Has decided to be nineteen forever.

  • Is a nudist and thinks clothing is a conspiracy to encourage breeding.

  • Believes fur cons should be clothing-optional.

  • Claims that he is now going to sue a bank for using the name “Lion Bank.”

  • Low-key cub fetishist.

  • Terrible at arguing.

So, let’s go through these one at a time.

He legally changed his name to “Simba Lion.” Need I say more? Actually, I DO need to say more. This person claims that Disney stole the name from him! He goes so far as to have his name on Telegram be @originalsimba!

Speaking of his name, he’s apparently VERY protective of it! Someone I know decided to bait him, and Simba responded with what is probably the funniest thing I’ve read in awhile:

sue 2.jpg.jpg
You didn’t read that wrong, it’s time to sue! This loon is going to try and take legal action against a bank for using the word “lion” in its name! The logic of this decision is just too much for me to handle!

Now, let’s start looking into this guy’s beliefs, shall we?
nudist 1.png.png
nudist 2.jpg.jpg
nudist 3.jpg.jpg
Yep! That’s right! He’s a nudist. And not only that, people wearing clothing is a conspiracy made by Western cultures to encourage reproduction.

He also starts arguments only to pussy out when he's unable to convince people to agree with his strange world views.

Did I mention he's one of those atheists? You know, the ones that don't believe in any higher power and think that it's perfectly fine to rant about how wrong people are to believe in a god of any kind but gets angry if people so much as mention that they believe in a god? He's one of those.

I thought I’d be done with this, but I feel that I can't just leave this part alone. Turns out, this dude has cub porn of his character!

If the cub porn wasn't enough to make you afraid, perhaps the fact that this picture is labeled "servant" on his website.

Also, I wasn’t able to find it in the chat where I met this guy, but I specifically remember him having an odd fixation on the Care Bears, specifically Grumpy Bear. I distinctly remember him saying that he had learned how to care for others and whatnot from it.

Pictures of Simba. All but the one of him with orange hair (did he dye it or is that a wig?) were taken by the man himself. Also, did I mention that he claims to be nineteen?

Notice how the collar is one of the same as the one seen here:

It's a miracle. America, nay, the entire western world has been saved. We have found the thing that will unite the polarized populations of the world. Hatred of this asshole. It does not matter if you're SJW, Alt-Right, or somewhere in between. There is something about this shit you can dislike. Also, I would LOVE to see him sue a bank for using a word in the dictionary. And Disney could sue HIM for using their character's name, if they felt so inclined.

This guy gives me Sindragon vibes, except Sindragon didn't legally get his name changed to his favorite Lion King character and he's incompetent as a person even when writing his shitty fics. And I'm sure he also doesn't have a cat to do possibly-questionable things to.

LOL, what an exceptional individual, he doesn't know a thing. Clothes are actually sentient alien fibers bent on destroying earth.

Now Simba here has guns, and he's got videos of himself at shooting ranges. That's worrisome.

I love shooting guns, and even I find that worrisome. I think this is what people mean when they say that we need background checks and mental health checks before you buy. I'm totally fine with them being tighter on who can and can't buy if this loon passes the checks!

Can I also say that his stance is terrible? You lean forward, not back.

One Steve Hopps recently went looking for a job in the IT industry. Level 2 support, really. The Chicago area shop he interviewed with was staffed by a goon who recognized the Anthrocon board experience which Hopps had listed under volunteer positions on the resume... which reveals him to be the AV director known as "Simba Lion" to the furries. That, with his pawprint pin, his all-black interview attire, and his general hygiene immediately signaled that this was a man to be hired without delay.

Simba took a three hour lunch break on his first day. Management discovered him looking at "pictures" on the internet, and fired him immediately. He's back on what we guess is his third year of unemployment, scumming for crash space at MFF, and generally living the life. (
