Tory Lanez was hit with another felony charge as he awaits the start of his trial in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting.
On Monday (December 5), prosecutors added the new charge of discharging a firearm “in a grossly negligent manner which could result in injury or death to a person.”
The new charge carries a possible six-year prison sentence and qualifies as a deportable crime.
Tory Lanez, whose birth name is Daystar Peterson, is originally from Brampton, Canada.
In addition to his new charge, he previously pleaded not guilty to one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
If convicted on all counts, Tory is facing a maximum sentence of 2 years and eight months behind bars.
The “Say It” singer took to Twitter to make a final statement:
“I’m going to leave this here one more time …and watch how it ages … NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER … AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES AGAINST ME IN JUDGEMENT SHALL BE CONDEMNED u sit and watch now …. And don’t ever question the GOD I serve again. This is my last tweet.”
See Tory’s original tweet below.
And just like clockwork, Twitter cut the fool in his replies.

In other trial-related news, LAPD Detective Ryan Stogner was “relieved of duty” last month due to a domestic violence allegation.
Stogner was the investigating officer who interviewed Meagan The Stallion after the shooting.
He is considered a “critical” witness for the defense because Tory Lanez’s attorneys plan to call him to testify in hopes of showing he “botched” the investigation.
Nancy Dillion, an investigative reporter for Rolling Stone shared the coverage via Twitter.
