Rapper Lil Durk was targeted in a home invasion at his residence in the Chateau Elan neighborhood of Braselton in Georgia.
The Chicago rapper and his girlfriend, India Cox (India Royale), reportedly exchanged gunfire in an apparent shootout with the gunmen who entered his home.
According to TMZ, Durk and India fired shots at the home intruders; however, the report does not confirm whether they fired shots at the couple.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation said the couple were victims of home invasion and aggravated. The incident happened over the weekend after 5 am.
The intruders did not harm the couple and reportedly fled the scene after the shooting.
It is unclear how many intruders entered Durk’s residence at the time of writing this report.
Hip Hop commentator DJ Akademiks revealed that police responded to a possible shooting at Durk’s home several days before the home invasion report emerged yesterday.
Lil Durk is a 28-year-old rapper from Chicago who has enjoyed a commercial resurgence with hit records such as 3 Headed Goat, Pooh Shiesty’s Back in Blood, and Drake’s Laugh Now Cry Later.
He released his sixth studio album, The Voice, last year to commercial and critical success. He followed up with a collaborative album The Voice of the Heroes, with Lil Baby the previous month.
