The Chicago-based artist, who released a song called “Turn Myself In” before his surrender, was charged with criminal attempt to commit murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm.
The shooting took place outside the Varsity restaurant early on the morning of Feb. 5 when an altercation led to a man being shot in the leg.
Shell casings and a rifle were discovered in the parking lot of the restaurant.
Alexander Witherspoon, 23, was taken to the Atlanta Medical Center for surgery after being shot in the thigh. Investigators claimed the incident was captured on surveillance cameras from the Varsity and a nearby cigar bar.
It was not clear what role Lil Durk played in the incident.
