Jadarius Dykes, the son of rapper Jeezy, was injured in an altercation in Warner Robins, Georgia, PEOPLE confirms.
The 22-year-old — who is also known by his father’s real last name, Jenkins — sustained a “significant” wound to his face during an incident that occurred on Dec. 16 in the city, which is 100 miles south of Atlanta.
“We are grateful to law enforcement for releasing Jadarius after their preliminary investigation. He continues to receive medical treatment for the injury he endured during the incident,” Dykes’ attorney tells PEOPLE in a statement.
According to the Warner Robins Police Department, officers responded to reports of shots fired just after 8 a.m.

Graham later died in hospital with an autopsy revealing he died as a result of two gunshot wounds, police report.
