DaBaby Won't Be Charged in Shooting Case Involving Home Intruder

The 'BOP' spitter, whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, shot an unnamed guy after the latter trespassed his Troutman, North Carolina property on April 13.

AceShowbiz - DaBaby has heard good news in his shooting case that involved a trespasser. It was unveiled that the "Ball If I Want To" rapper managed to avoid criminal charges after he shot a home intruder a few weeks prior.

On Thursday, May 5, the Troutman Police Department released a statement on Facebook that read, "The investigation into the shooting incident that occurred at 135 Stillwater Drive on April 13, 2022, has been completed and closed." It added, "Investigators have consulted with the Iredell County District Attorney's Office and there will be no criminal charges filed at this time."

DaBaby, born Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, shot the intruder in the leg after the unnamed man broke into his $2.3m mansion in Troutman, North Carolina at night. Following the shooting, the hip-hop star called 911 to report the ordeal.

In a call recording released by Iredell County Emergency Communications, the "ROCKSTAR" hitmaker said, "I shot him in the leg," while the intruder was screaming in agony in the background. The dispatcher then asked him, "Ok and why did you do that?"

"He's trespassing on my property ... I don't know what he's here for. What he's here to take, what he's here to do... He's neutralized until you guys get here," the ex-boyfriend of DaniLeigh added. When the dispatcher asked, "Are you with him now?" the emcee said, "Yes, he's right here in front of me... He's bleeding. He's been shot."

The operator further pressed DaBaby with more questions, prompting him to yell, "I already told you what happened! Somebody else might be with this guy!" He then argued, "You can interrogate me when y'all get here and save this man's life. That's why I'm calling you! I don't want somebody else sneakin' up on me!"

When addressing the ordeal days after it happened, DaBaby sent well-wishes to the intruder. "Buddy ain't deserve to go, I step righteously. Heal up & live my boy! Just don't bring ya a** back," he penned in an Instagram post.
