Just weeks after proclaiming his innocence in his newly released album, Tory Lanez has been charged in connection with the shooting involving Megan Thee Stallion.
The L.A. County D.A.’s Office charged him with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The D.A. also alleged Tory inflicted great bodily injury .
If convicted, the hip hop artist faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison.
Prosecutors are said to be considering a charge of felony assault with a firearm against Tory after Megan said she was shot back in July. Before then, Tory had been arrested only for possession of a firearm. Now prosecutors are specifically pointing at Tory as the person who pulled the trigger, leaving Meg with an awful foot injury.
Some time after the shooting, Megan went public naming Tory as the person who shot her. She didn’t pussyfoot around, stating frankly, “Yes, this n***a Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to these blogs lying and s**t, stop lying!”
Sources say Tory is going to counteract the claim by saying it was an accidental shooting. The video of the incident that circulated the web showed Tory Lanez lying face-down on the pavement and Megan tip-toeing delicately away from the SUV, leaving bloody footprints, after being pulled over by the cops .
The injury to Megan’s feet were so bad she had to have the bullets and/or bullet fragments surgically removed.
