Tory Lanez was charged Thursday in connection with the shooting of fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Born Daystar Peterson, the 22-year-old rapper was charged with two felony counts: assault with a semiautomatic firearm — personal use of a firearm; and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. Peterson also faces a gun allegation and that he personally inflicted great bodily injury, according to authorities.
Tory went on Twitter today to share his side of the story….
