In connection with the shooting involving fellow rapper Megan Thy Stallion, Tory Lanez has finally been charged.
In a statement on Thursday, October 8, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office confirmed that the Canadian rapper was charged with one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic weapon-personal use of a weapon-and transporting a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
He also faces a weapons claim and that after the suspected attack he himself inflicted great bodily harm.
Tory's arraignment is set for Saturday, October 10, according to the LA County District Attorney's office, and if sentenced of the event, the rapper will face a potential term of 22 years and eight months of jail.
This comes two weeks after he denied shooting Megan in his newly released album, "Daystar."
Lanez opened his album with the diss song "Money Over Fallouts," where he addressed the shooting allegations and claimed that "Megan people trying to frame me for a shooting."
"Girl, you had the nerve to write that statement on an affidavit knowing I ain't do it but I'm coming at my truest trying to keep this shit 200 with you, shorty, I can prove it."
Tory also quizzed Megan’s injuries in the song, rapping, "Gotta see a couple questions: how the fu*k you get shot in your foot, don't hit no bones or tendons?
Back in August, Megan Thee Stallion accused Tory of shooting her in the feet following a party in the Hollywood Hills in July, and had to underdo surgery to remove the bullets.
