Lil Durk's fiancée, India Cox reportedly exchanged gunfire in a shootout with several home invaders near Atlanta on Sunday morning, July 11.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, both Lil Durk, 28, and India, 26, discharged their firearms. But sources say only India fired her weapon.

The couple's toddler daughter was in the home at the time, but she was uninjured.

Durk, real name Durk Banks, is awaiting attempted murder charges in Atlanta and is prohibited from owning or discharging a firearm.

The couple allegedly awoke to the sound of intruders breaking into their rented mansion at 5 a.m. in the Chateau Elan neighborhood of Braselton, Ga., about an hour northeast of Atlanta.

After they exchanged gunfire with the suspects, the intruders fled the home and remain at large. No injuries were reported.

Police say the home invasion was not random and the couple was targeted.

The home break-in occurred hours after federal agents allegedly "raided" Durk's home following a shooting in Atlanta. There were no charges.

Speculation is running rampant that Durk is a federal "snitch" since he was not arrested for having firearms in his home as a convicted felon.

Durk is out on bond following his arrest on attempted murder charges in 2019. Also arrested on the same charge was fellow Chicago gangster rapper King Von, who was killed outside a lounge in downtown Atlanta in November 2020.

Durk's older brother, OTF DThang, born Dontay Banks Jr., 32, was shot and killed following an argument at a strip club near Chicago in June.

A 12-year-old boy shot and killed an intruder who shot his 73-year-old grandma during a home invasion robbery.

According to North Carolina officials, two masked men forced their way into a Goldsboro home and demanded money before shooting 73-year-old Linda Ellis.

"A 12-year-old juvenile occupant of the residence shot at the suspects with a firearm in self-defense, causing them to flee the area," said officials in a statement.

One of the suspects staggered to a nearby intersection where he collapsed. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Police identified the deceased gunman as 19-year-old Khalil Herring, WRAL reported.

"Preliminary evidence suggest Khalil Herring was one of the two masked intruders and was shot during the robbery," wrote officials.

Ellis was hospitalized in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the leg

Randolph Bunn, the great-uncle of the boy, was in the home at the time of the intrusion.

"They came in the house, I open the door, I open it, and they came in there. One guy had a gun. They just put me down on the ground," he told ABC 11.

Bunn said the boy shot at the intruder who "just shot his grandma" and "would have shot him too, he would've shot me too, he would've killed us all".

Ellis' great niece Chiquita Coley said, "I just couldn't believe she been shot because she's a good person."

"Why would somebody come into her house and do this? It's got to stop," said Coley.

"I don't know what they're thinking around here in Goldsboro, but it's got to stop," she added.

The boy will not be charged, but the investigation is ongoing, said officials.

Jeffree Star's storybook romance with another woman's husband is apparently over.

The 34-year-old fashion designer and makeup artist took to his Instagram story to accuse Andre Marhold of stealing from him and refusing to answer his phone calls.

Jeffree accused Andre of robbing his Huntington Beach home and fleeing.

"Hey! Since you can't answer the phone right now, can you give me all the stuff back that you stole from my house?? What kind of lowlife f**king scum does that? Give it back!!! If you need a return label, just ask [crying laughing emojis]."

Andre, 30, is a professional basketball player who has played for Germany's Giessen 46ers. He is probably out of the country by now.

Turnabout is fair game: Jeffree reportedly stole Andre from his baby mama, Emmanuella "Leezy" Chartol. Leezy fell apart when she saw a photo of her baby daddy sitting on Jeffree's lap. She poured her heart out on Instagram.

"My son matters. My son was so happy last week. Idc if it's about money but this hurts me a lot and affects my son," she wrote. "God please help me to keep my head up for my son cause this s**t is unreal. Please help me God to be strong for my son."

In a follow-up post, she wrote:

"Tell me what I've done to you? Tell me why to expose yourself but my son? Money? Cause I could work harder to make our life better. I was your ride and die, I could do anything to save our relationship. Anything."

A friend arrived at the home and told Hawk he was in the wrong house. The two men fled before police arrived, TMZ reports.

Hawk was arrested about a block away from the home and charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Hawk told police he was looking for his girlfriend.

The incident comes less than a day after Hawk was arrested in Santa Ana for a domestic disturbance call on MacArthur Boulevard, according to ABC 7.

His 2015 viral hit song "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" has garnered over 1.7 billion views on YouTube.

DeKalb County police announced an arrest in the 2012 shooting death of 18-year-old Vanessa "Honey" Malone.

Donald Ash, 34, was arrested at 4:30 p.m. Friday, April 3, and was being held at the DeKalb County jail, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The DeKalb County police did not release details regarding how investigators linked Ash to Malone's murder.

Malone was shot multiple times when she walked into a Stone Mountain apartment and interrupted a home invasion in progress.

According to AJC.com, Malone entered a unit at Hampton Village Apartments on Tree Mountain Parkway and interrupted three to six armed robbers who had tied up the apartment's occupants.

The couple, who'd been in bed, said the men broke in armed with handguns and shotguns. Moments later, they heard Malone scream and gunshots rang out.

The woman told police she heard the men take Malone to the back of the apartment after the shots.

The couple waited several minutes before untying themselves and calling police, she said.

Malone's murder went viral on social media, and spawned a "Justice for Honey" Facebook group with 137,000 members.

Malone's cold case was featured on The Dr. Oz Show last month.

Last Friday, Malone's mother pleaded for justice for her daughter.

"You still have time to do the right thing and speak up," she wrote on Facebook. "I am just saying it would make you feel better and help get all those involved arrested."

Yung Berg, who has a history of putting his hands on women, is crying foul over the latest allegation that he brutally pistol-whipped his "girlfriend" and broke her nose.

In response to the media coverage, Berg, real name Christian Ward, who also goes by Hitmaka, posted a statement from his lawyer on Instagram.com on Tuesday.

According to Ward's lawyer, Talia Tilley is not the rapper's girlfriend. She arrived at Ward's house around 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, March 14. Ward's lawyer said Tilley knew the layout of his house and the grounds.

Although it was late and 50-degrees outside, Tilley talked Ward into taking a dip in the Jacuzzi. After some physical intimacy, Tilley made a "calculated, unprovoked attack on Ward, slapping and punching him repeatedly," according to Ward's legal team.

Ward defended himself by retrieving a gun and delivering some street justice to his alleged attacker (Tilley).

In the middle of the assault by Tilley, Ward's ADT home alarm sounded at the back door. A Ring camera captured footage of two armed men jumping the back fence into Ward's yard and attempting to breach the back door. They were unsuccessful because of a heavy chain and lock on the door. Then the gunmen went around to the front of the house and tried to kick in the front door.

During the attempted home invasion, Ward glanced at Tilley's cell phone screen and noticed she was "sharing her location with an unknown person." The person was "calling and texting her before, during, and after this attempted home invasion robbery," the lawyer wrote.

Ward provided security videos and phone records to the LAPD to assist in their investigation of Tilley and the home invaders.

On the night he died, rapper Pop Smoke held a private party at the $2.5 million home he leased from Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp.

The 20-year-old Brooklyn drill rapper, real name Bashar Jackson, had signed the lease a month before he was gunned down inside the house by four masked home invaders at 4:29 a.m. on Feb. 19.

10 days after his death, the LAPD have hit a roadblock, unable to identify the four suspects seen on surveillance video entering the house on the 2000 block of Hercules Drive in Los Angeles.

About 20 people attended a party at the home to celebrate Pop Smoke's recent album release. But detectives say they have no leads due to a lack of witnesses.

Law enforcement tell TMZ that people are unwilling to talk about what they saw.

The potential witnesses cops have spoken to keep changing their stories, or telling outright lies. To make matters worse, cops wasted precious hours viewing videos online that turned out to have no connection to the case.

One Instagram blog with thousands of followers posted surveillance footage that purportedly showed the shooting inside the house. But the video turned out to be footage from a deadly home invasion in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Cops are having trouble coming up with a motive for the murder. Adding to their frustration, the victim lived in Brooklyn, but spent time on the West Coast. Which means cops have had to spend extra time tracking down witnesses who returned to the East Coast.

Pop Smoke was not a household name when he died, but his murder boosted sales of his music, including his 2019 breakout hit "Welcome to the Party."

For two days after his death, Hercules Drive was lined with TV trucks and fans paying tribute to the drill rapper.

When a reporter visited on Friday afternoon, the street was all but empty, except for two construction workers painting a house nearby.

"It was impossible for a few days," one neighbor told reporter Tarpley Hitt, of theDailyBeast.com. "But now it seems weirdly normal."

While Hitt canvased the neighborhood looking for witnesses, three young girls drove up to the cream colored house, taking pictures of the small shrine that included flowers and a crumpled dollar bill.

"We love him," one of the girls told Hitt. "We only heard about him when he died, from the Internet."

Rapper T.I. is like any other man who wants safety and security for his family. The rapper probably had peace of mind when he moved into the exclusive, gated Eagles Landing subdivision in Henry County, Georgia.

But despite 24/7 guard presence and a gate, a robbing crew is breaking into homes in the upscale neighborhood. And now families are concerned about their safety among million-dollar homes.

Channel 2's Matt Johnson reports that families of Indian descent are bing targeted.

"These guys are smart," said one Indian man who asked Channel 2 not to show his face on camera. The resident said Indians are being targeted because they typically keep a lot of cash and gold jewelry in their homes.

The victim said thieves broke his back window to gain access to his upscale home while he was gone out Saturday night.

It's the third home burglary in the past two weeks inside Eagles Landing, where comedian Chris Tucker also owns a home.

The victim said he isn't sure the thieves are coming in from the outside.

"How they are getting in the neighborhood, that is a little bit mystery," said the man.

At another house, a mother and daughter returned from karate class to find a back window smashed and the house ransacked. $9,000 in cash and an expensive necklace were stolen.

Another family told Johnson that thieves stole at least $30,000 in jewelry from their home while they were gone.

The homeowner's association held a meeting with residents on Thursday to discuss the home break-ins.

Henry County police are investigating the cases.

A hotel employee turned the tables on an armed robber when she grabbed his gun after he dropped it on the counter to pick up the cash.

It happened at a Country Inn and Suites hotel in Paducah, Kentucky on Monday night. Surveillance video shows the female employee throwing cash at the hapless robber who dropped his gun on the counter to scoop up the cash.

As he bent down to pick the money up off the floor, the quick-thinking employee grabbed the gun and pointed it and him.

The suspect fled out the front door but he returned moments later demanding his gun. The woman pointed the pistol at him again, sending him fleeing into the parking lot.

The suspect was a white male with a thin build and curly blond hair. Police recovered the gun at the scene, and a white shirt and knit cap were found nearby on McBride Lane.

Update:

The Paducah Police Department announced an arrest in the case on Wednesday.

The hapless robber has been identified as Cory T. Phillips, 26, of West Paducah. Phillips was arrested on Tuesday during a traffic stop.

Phillips is charged with first-degree robbery and receiving a stolen firearm stemming from the robbery at the Country Inn and Suites hotel in Paducah, Kentucky on Monday night, according to WPSD Local 6 News.

The gun recovered at the hotel was reported stolen during a burglary at a home on Adams Street last week.

Police say a McCracken County Sheriff's deputy noticed the driver of a gray Dodge Stratus wasn't wearing his seat belt. He pulled the car over on Bridge Street on Tuesday afternoon. The deputy said the driver, Phillips, was acting nervous.

The deputy searched the car and found an Apple computer that was reported stolen from the same Adams Street home where a gun was taken during a burglary.

The deputy also found a white Stryper t-shirt of the same brand and style as the one the hotel robber wore to conceal his face. A white Stryper t-shirt and knit cap were found discarded near the hotel on Monday night.

A Paducah police detective made the connection between the computer, the gun and the white t-shirts, and Phillips was charged with the 2 robberies. He is currently being held without bond in the McCracken County Jail.
