The Atlanta Police Department reportedly issued an arrest warrant for the rapper in regards to his connection to a shooting that took place at Atlanta's popular fast-food restaurant, The Varsity, TMZ reports.

Law enforcement wants to book Lil Durk on five felony charges, including criminal intent to commit murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and another charge of associating with a criminal street gang to participate in a crime.
According to the police report obtained by TMZ, officers responded to reports of a person shot at The Varsity around 5:45 am on Feb. 5, 2019.
