After nine days of testimony in the Tory Lanez assault trial, a California jury has found the rapper guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.
A verdict was reached about 24 hours after the jury first broke for deliberations on Dec. 22. The jury consisted of five men and seven women.
Lanez faced charges of felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle stemming from the July 2020 shooting incident that left rapper Megan Thee Stallion with foot injuries.
The 30-year-old Canadian rapper was convicted on all three counts.
In August 2020 during an Instagram live, Megan publicly identified Lanez as the person who attacked her however, Lanez has adamantly denied the allegations and suggested that Kelsey Harris, Megan’s former best friend, was the person responsible.
The trial, which kicked off on Dec. 12, revealed shocking revelations of what occurred during the chaotic summer night including an argument between the two artists about the success of their careers.
During the trial, the jury heard testimony several people who were present during that night including Megan, her former best friend, Kelsey Harris and her former stylist, EJ King.
