In wake of June being National Gun Violence Awareness month, Baltimore loss two very great individuals due to senseless gun violence. Well, Lil Durk is facing murder charges currently in Atlanta due to senseless gun violence. Only the catch is, Atlanta Police Department (APD) believes they have clear video of Lil Durk actually pulling the trigger from his car window outside of The Varsity.
According to WSB-TV 2 Atlanta, Rapper Lil Durk was in court Friday for a probable cause hearing about his alleged involvement in a shooting outside The Varsity in downtown Atlanta. The shooting happened on Feb. 5 at 5:49 a.m. An Atlanta police detective said Lil Durk, whose real name is Durk Derrick Banks, was seen on video shooting a man near The Varsity while he was driving.
Just before 2 p.m. Friday, the judge found probable cause for Lil Durk and his co-defendent, DeaVonte Bennett, to be charged with possession and criminal intent to commit murder, among other charges. Before he surrendered last month, Lil Durk spoke exclusively with Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne. He said he had “nothing to hide.” Now, two weeks later, Lil Durk and Bennett were in court, hearing Atlanta Police Department detective Jeffrey Churchill lay out evidence against them. “I spoke to a witness who was there at the scene when the incident took place,” Churchill said.
Well, hopefully these charges will wake Lil Durk up a bit and realize that senseless violence to him does eventually make sense to someone else.
