    At this point, it is unclear how many people forced their way into Durk’s home illegally. Police reported that the intruders fled the scene.

    The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is asking the public for any tips relating to the invasion.

    DJ Akademiks reported about the 'heavy police presence' in the area following the incident.

    "Lil Durk’s residence in Atlanta had heavy police presence and was possibly raided due to an investigation about a shooting and other crimes,” Akademiks explained.

    "They said there was an alleged shooting around where he lived at."

    The media personality continued: "This is a gated community, they called him the victim."

    "His neighbours and people that lived in that community have reported it to me that like, ‘Yo, Durk live down there and there are mad cops. FBI is trying to execute a search warrant.'" Akademiks added.
