Rapper Tory Lanez will stand trial in the shooting of fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Canadian-born Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, 29, is scheduled to return to court for arraignment on Jan. 13, 2022.
If convicted as charged, he faces a maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in state prison.
Megan Thee Stallion, whose given name is Megan Pete, was shot in the foot on July 12 after apparently arguing while riding in an SUV in the Hollywood Hills, according to the LA County District Attorney’s Office.
As she got out of vehicle, Peterson allegedly shot at her feet several times.
