A Los Angeles court has found rapper and singer Tory Lanez guilty this Friday of three counts of shooting in July 2020 against fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood.

This has been reported by the Los Angeles County prosecutor, George Gascón, to the CNN network, which has detailed that the 30-year-old Canadian rapper has been convicted of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, for shooting with gross negligence , and for carrying a loaded and unregistered pistol in a vehicle.

After the verdict, Gascón has thanked Megan for her testimony and has condemned the harassment and ridicule he experienced after presenting her version after being shot.

“You showed incredible courage and vulnerability with your testimony despite repeated and grotesque attacks that you did not deserve,” Gascón asserted, The Washington Post reported.

“Women, especially black women, are afraid to report crimes like assault and sexual violence because too often they are not believed,” he added.

Shot in one foot

Megan accused Lanez of shooting her in the foot after she got out of their vehicle following an argument.

In her testimony during the trial, Megan detailed that things were tense in the car between her, Lanez and her former friend and assistant, Kelsey Harris.

The artist stated that Lanez wanted her to open up to Harris about the fact that the two had been intimate. But, according to Billboard magazine, Megan felt uncomfortable doing it because she knew Harris had a crush on the Canadian singer-rapper.
