Lil Durk is facing some serious charges over his alleged involvement in a shooting in Atlanta.

The Chicago rapper, whose real name is Durk Derrick Banks, was in court on Friday (June 14) for a hearing. The judge found probable cause for Durk and his co-defendant to be charged with possession and criminal intent to commit murder among other charges, according to WSB-TV.

The Atlanta Police Department says a witness saw Durk pull out a gun before hearing gunshots and seeing the victim in a pool of blood. The police also claim to have video evidence of the shooting.

Officers responded to reports of a person shot on the morning of Feb. 5 at a restaurant called The Varsity. Detective say a gold chain, $30,000 in cash, and a vehicle were stolen from the victim, who underwent surgery after suffering a gunshot wound.

Durk turned himself in at the end of May on five felony charges including criminal intent to commit murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during 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 Uproxx, an aggravated assault with intent to murder charge can carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison in the state of Georgia. Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is punishable by five years.
