According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, Tory Lanez, the man guilty of shooting rapper Megan Thee Stallion in 2020, was sentenced to ten years in jail on Tuesday,
A Los Angeles jury convicted Lanez guilty of three felonies relating to the July 2020 shooting of fellow rapper Stallion in the Hollywood Hills in December of last year, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney at the time.
According to prosecutors, Lanez had pled not guilty to assault with a semiautomatic firearm, carrying a loaded unlicensed firearm in a vehicle, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
The jury found him guilty on all three counts.
Stallion accused Lanez of shooting her in the foot after she fled the vehicle in which they were driving in following an altercation.
LA County District Attorney George Gascón revealed how Lanez tried to “silence” Stallion after she accused him of shooting her in 2020 at a press conference following the sentencing on Tuesday.
