A judge ruled that Tory Lanez will face trial over allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion.
The July 2020 shooting incident between Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez is far from over! According to Rolling Stone, Judge Keith Borjon has found probable cause to send the case to trial after the preliminary hearing on Dec. 14, 2021.
The outlet shares that the testimony of LAPD Det. Ryan Stogner on the stand confirmed the long-standing rumor that Tory did in fact shoot Megan. Of course, many fans initially believed Megan’s account about the shooting, but the detective’s testimony of his interview with Megan serves as the proof in the pudding for the court.
During Detective Stogner's testimony, he shared that an intoxicated Tory screamed at Megan saying, “Dance, b—h,” right before allegedly shooting her in the feet.
“[Megan] observed Mr. Peterson holding a firearm, and then she observed him start to shoot,” the outlet shared. "Megan immediately felt pain to her feet, observed blood, fell to the ground, and then crawled to an adjacent driveway of a residence. … She described her injuries as bleeding profusely."
The detective went on to share that Megan claimed that after Tory allegedly shot her, “he offered her money and begged her to please not say anything.” Megan also told the detective that Tory made reference to him currently being on probation.
LAPD Officer Sandra Cabral who responded to the investigation also shared that they found Tory’s gun under his passenger seat in the car and that the weapon “was warm to the touch,” which suggests that the “firearm had been used recently.”
Even though Tory’s attorney, Shawn Holley attempted to poke holes in the testimony of the officers, the judge has decided to move forward with the trial. Tory is scheduled to return to court on Jan. 13, 2022.
