Tory Lanez will have to stand trial in the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion, a judge ruled on Tuesday according to news channels.
The incident dates back to last year when Megan Thee Stallion was shot in the foot on July 12 after arguing while in an SUV in the Hollywood Hills, according to the LA County District Attorney’s Office. Tory allegedly shot at her feet several times after telling her, “dance b*tch.”
Both Lanez and his attorney declined to comment. Next hearing Jan. 13th. In a preview of a possible defense during today's prelim, Peterson's attorney seemed to be hinting that another person in the car (a friend of Megan Thee Stallion) may have actually pulled the trigger.

Holley said the other woman in the car, Megan’s former assistant/friend who “had a romantic interest in Tory,” became jealous and claimed Megan “back-doored” her.

The details of what exactly happened is still a bit sketchy but Tory’s attorney seemed to be hinting that another person in the car (possibly a friend of Megan Thee Stallion’s) may have actually pulled the trigger. The Judge upheld the assault charges against the Canadian rapper-singer today.
Tory is scheduled to return to court for arraignment on Jan. 13, 2022.
