Lil Durk and Girlfriend Involved in a Shootout
US rapper Lil Durk, real name Durk Derrick Banks, and his girlfriend, India Cox, have been involved in a shoot out in their home in Atlanta, Georgia.
According to police, “several unidentified individuals” entered around 5:14 a.m. Sunday.
During the break-in, “the suspects and the residents exchanged gunfire,” the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a statement. Neither Banks nor Cox were hurt during what authorities have described as an “aggravated assault/home invasion incident.” (TMZ appears to have first reported on this break-in.)
Lil Durk, 28, and late rapper King Von were both accused of involvement in a February 2019 shooting outside an Atlanta restaurant. Banks was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault, among other charges, court records show.
King Von, born Dayvon Bennett, was killed last November after being shot outside an Atlanta nightclub. Police said that two groups of males started to argue with each other outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge early November 6 when their dispute “quickly escalated to gunfire.” Bennett was 26.
Despite his legal woes, Banks’s music career has skyrocketed. He and Lil Baby officially released their long-awaited collab, The Voice of the Heroes, on June 4, bringing along Meek Mill, Travis Scott, Young Thug, and Rod Wave for their 18-track album. Banks and Lil Baby were also in DJ Khaled’s “Every Chance I Get” video, which dropped in early May.
The 28-year-old has had 33 songs in the US Hot 100 chart so far this year, more than any other artist, according to Billboard.
