Tory Lanez has been ordered to stand trial on felony assault and gun charges for allegedly shooting at Megan Thee Stallion‘s feet and wounding her.
Superior Court Judge Keith H. Borjon rejected a bid by defense attorney Shawn Holley to dismiss the case “for insufficiency of the evidence.”
LAPD Detective Ryan Stogner testified on Tuesday (December 14) during a preliminary hearing that Tory Lanez told Megan to “Dance b**ch, dance!” while firing shots at the ground.
According to Det. Ryan Stogner, Tory was standing on the step board of an SUV, and Megan was outside, and as soon as Tory started shooting she “immediately felt pain to her feet, observed blood, fell to the ground, and crawled to an adjacent driveway of a residence.”
Which doesn’t correlate with the video showing Megan and her friend exiting the SUV.
He also said that Megan told him Tory was intoxicated and he apologized and begged her not to tell, offering her money to stay quiet because he was on probation.
Det. Stogner said Megan initially claimed her injuries came from stepping on broken glass.
But, Megan later admitted publicly that she feared cops would’ve shot Tory if she told them a Black man had a gun and shot her.
The judge decided he had enough information from Tuesday’s preliminary hearing to move forward with a trial.
The trial is scheduled to start on January 13, 2022.
Tory is facing one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a concealed, unregistered firearm.
The incident took place in July 2020, and it has been confirmed that Megan did have shrapnel in her feet.
