As you may recall, musical artist Tory Lanez, born Daystar Peterson, is reportedly accused of firing a gun in the direction of Megan Thee Stallion, real name Megan Pete, in the Hollywood Hills at about 4:30 a.m. on July 12, 2020.

In addition to the new charge, Tory, 30, is also facing two charges of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle for allegedly shooting Megan, 27.

As previously reported, as the trial between the entertainers kicked off, Tory shared with the court judge his list of potential defense witnesses.

Reportedly, Tory is planning to call reality star Kylie Jenner, 25, and her mother’s boyfriend Corey Gamble, 42, to the witness stand. Tory’s legal team stated that the night in question stemmed from an argument that started at Kylie Jenner’s pool party in L.A., where Corey Gamble was also in attendance.
