Canadian rapper Tory Lanez has been charged in connection with the shooting incident involving Megan Thee Stallion, which resulted in the “WAP” singer being hospitalized.
Lanez, whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, is facing one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded, concealed firearm in a vehicle, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.
On July 12, Megan and Lanez were pulled over in California’s Hollywood Hills. Lanez was eventually arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, while Megan was handcuffed but later sent to the hospital.
Megan later revealed that she was shot several times in both her feet. She also posted a graphic photo of her wound, which she later deleted.
Lanez’ arraignment is scheduled for October 13. If convicted on both charges, Lanez faces a maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in prison.
