The Los Angeles Police Department is officially looking into the allegation that Megan Thee Stallion suffered gunshot wounds after Tory Lanez allegedly shot at her twice. According to TMZ, detectives have opened an assault with a deadly weapon investigation into what allegedly happened early Sunday morning July 12, shortly before cops pulled over Tory’s chauffeur-driven SUV in the Hollywood Hills.
This comes after it was earlier reported that Tory Lanez was the culprit who allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion in the feet twice during an argument as she and her best friend Kelsey Nicole attempted to get out of his SUV following a fight at a house party in the Hollywood Hills. Recall, the Canadian rapper was arrested and booked for possession of a concealed weapon after Police found a handgun in his car as they pulled him over with Megan Thee Stallion and her best friend.
In the footage obtained by TMZ, Megan was seen leaving bloody footprints as she limps away from the SUV when police pulled them over and instructed the trio out of the car after a report that shots were fired early Sunday morning. Three days after the incident, Megan issued a statement, in which she revealed that she suffered gunshot wounds and was rushed to the hospital where she underwent surgery to remove the bullets, contradicting initial reports that she had cut her foot due to broken glass in the car.
Now that authorities are upgrading the investigation to assault with a deadly weapon, TMZ believes it could pave the way for new charges against Tory. Sources connected to the Canadian rapper have said he would claim the shooting was accidental if he’s charged for the shooting.
