Rapper Lil Durk in shootout with intruders

US rapper Lil Durk, who was nominated for two Grammy Awards earlier this year, has been involved in a shootout with intruders at his home.

Georgia police said the residents exchanged gunfire with several suspects on Sunday, but were not injured, reports BBC.

The Chicago star has been touched by gun violence before, with several relatives and members of his circle reported to have been shot dead.

In June, his new album hit number one in the US and number five in the UK.

According to TMZ, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation says the rapper and his girlfriend, India Cox, were the victims of a home invasion and aggravated assault this past Sunday a little after 5 am.

Several unidentified individuals entered Durk’s home in the Chateau Elan neighborhood of Braselton — about an hour outside Atlanta — and a shootout ensued. Durk and India discharged their firearms, but they were not injured during the incident.

It’s unclear exactly how many people allegedly entered the home, but cops are asking for tips from the public in the case as part of the investigation.
