Lil Durk turned himself in this week after news broke that he’d been charged in connection to a shooting.
“Lil Durk is a wanted man in Atlanta, because a warrant has been issued for his arrest … and we’re told it’s in connection with a shooting. The Atlanta Police Department tells TMZ … cops have obtained arrest warrants for Lil Durk, but the rapper is not yet in police custody,” TMZ reported prior to the Atlanta rapper turning himself in on Thursday. “Law enforcement sources tell us cops want to bring Lil Durk in to book him on 5 FELONY charges … including criminal intent to commit murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and another charge of associating with a criminal street gang to participate in a crime.”
According to reports, the shooting went down outside of The Varsity restaurant in Atlanta…
“As for the shooting, it’s all detailed in a police report … cops say officers responded to reports of a person shot around 5:45 AM Feb. 5 at a restaurant called The Varsity, where they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. Police say they recovered 13 shell casings from a rifle and pistol at the scene and found a firearm,” the site states. “According to cops, the shooting victim was rushed to a hospital and underwent surgery … and we’re told he survived.”
Before he surrendered himself to police, Durk released a song proclaiming his innocence. On the track, “Turn Myself In,” he also said his longtime love India Royale will of course stay by his side. See their best Instagram moments below and keep Durkio and his beautiful family in your prayers.
