Tory Lanez whose real name is Daystar Peterson was charged on Thursday, October 8, 2020 with shooting Megan Thee Stallion whose real name is Megan Pete.
On July 12, 2020 Lanez and Megan were riding in a SUV in Hollywood Hills when they got into an argument with each other. Lanez was accused of firing at Megan’s foot several times while she was trying to get out of the vehicle, leaving her with a wound on her foot.
Officers responded to a call of shots fired and arrested and charged Lanez with carrying a concealed weapon. The Police then made a statement saying the unarmed victim was transported to a nearby hospital with a foot injury.
Megan said she was afraid to tell the police she had been shot , fearing of another police shooting.
Megan went weeks without speaking on the incident before she broke her silence. In early August, Megan accused Tory Lanez of shooting her on Instagram live saying “Yes this nigga Tory shot me.” She then went on to say “You shot me and you got your publicist and your people to go to these blogs lying.”
Tory Lanez is currently facing a felony count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded, concealed firearm in a vehicle.
Lanez arraignment is scheduled for October 13, 2020. If convicted he could face a max sentence of 22 years and 8 months. The case is still under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.
