Canadian rapper Tory Lanez has been found guilty of three charges related to the shooting death of former colleague and friend Megan Thee Stallion.
A jury in a Los Angeles courtroom on Friday handed down the verdict unanimously, Billboard reports.
The rapper was convicted of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, carrying an unregistered loaded firearm in a vehicle and grossly negligent discharge of a firearm.
The said incident took place in July 2020 after the two rappers left a private party hosted by reality TV star Kylie Jenner.
Megan said she got into a fight with Lanez and her friend Harry, who led Lanez’s security guard, Jaquan Smith, into the house.
In the heat of the fight, Meghan said she got out of the car, after which Lanez shot her in the leg. He said he yelled “Dance, whore” as he shot through the window several times.
Although he declined to take the stand at trial, Lanez previously pleaded “not guilty” in November 2020 after being indicted.
With the verdict, Lanez received a 22-year prison sentence.
