Atlanta, GA – A warrant has reportedly been issued for Lil Durk’s arrest. TMZ reports the Atlanta Police Department says officers have obtained the warrant, but Durk isn’t in police custody — yet.
The Interscope Records rapper shared a somewhat cryptic Instagram post on Wednesday (May 29), indicating he was turning himself into police. He didn’t provide any further details.
According to WSB-TV Atlanta, officers responded to reports of a person shot around 5:45 a.m. local time on February 5 at The Varsity restaurant, where they discovered a man suffering from a gunshot wound.
Officers recovered 13 shell casings from a rifle and pistol at the scene as well as a firearm. They believe at least 18 shots were fired.
The 23-year-old shooting victim was rushed to Atlanta Medical Center where he underwent surgery. He survived.

Police interviewed two witnesses who said the victim appeared to be in a verbal dispute with an unknown black male before the shooting. Officers have the surveillance footage and are looking for a dark-colored SUV seen leaving the area.
Durk has yet to turn himself over to authorities. The investigation is ongoing and it’s unclear how the LilDurk2x creator is involved.
