TORY Lanez allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion after their fight inside an SUV – but witnesses to the incident are 'not cooperating' in the investigation.
A few days ago, the Savage rapper revealed she had been shot on the foot but assured her fans that she was fine.
TMZ reported on Thursday that Tory Lanez – whose real name is Daystar Peterson – allegedly shot Megan – whose real name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete – as she tried to leave his SUV.
According to claims by a source with a direct connection to the case, an argument started after Tory, 27, and Megan, 25, left a Hollywood Hills party together in the SUV.
However, Tory pulled out his gun inside the car and allegedly hit Megan in the feet twice when she and her friend, Kelsey Nicole, wanted out of the vehicle.
Another source close to the Canadian rapper claimed it was an accident.
"Tory fired the shots from within the vehicle while Megan was outside trying to leave,” another source claimed to Page Six on Thursday.
"There is video and the police are investigating. This is a case of a man physically harming and abusing a woman."
However, Page Six could not confirm whether there was a video submitted to the investigation, as LAPD said that any videos would “not be released until the case goes to court in order to protect the integrity of the case."
Police would not confirm whether Lanez is a suspect, but mainly because witnesses are not cooperating with the investigation, according to TMZ.
On Wednesday, Megan claimed she was shot in the foot during a shooting outside a Hollywood Hills home in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Police were called to the party after gunshots rung out, and Tory Lanez's car, carrying Megan, was pulled over as it matched the description.
Video footage showed cops demanding the occupants exit the vehicle, with Megan – in a bikini – leaving with her hands in the air and calling out: "My hands are up."
However, the rapper took to Instagram on Wednesday to "set the record straight" after it was suggested she had cut her foot on glass, instead, revealing that she had "suffered gunshot wounds" and was taken to hospital by the police.
She posted: "I was never arrested. This whole experience was an eye-opener and a blessing in disguise.
"I hate that it took this experience for me to learn how to protect my energy."
Alongside the caption, she wrote a lengthy note which read: "The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight (sic).
"On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me."
Megan continued: "I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets.
"I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night.
"I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible."
Law enforcement sources told TMZ "four shell casings were recovered from the scene outside the home."
Tory was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle, which is a felony, but he had not been connected to the shots that were fired at the party.
The rapper posted $35,000 bail and was released at 10 a.m. that same day; he is scheduled to appear in court on October 13.
Tory rose to fame with his hit singles, Say It and Luv, which peaked at number 23 and 19 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Meg and Tory had been party-hopping all night, as earlier on Saturday they were with Kylie Jenner at her Holmby Hills home, enjoying a pool party.
The three all appeared together on Instagram Live at Kylie's house.
There are no confirmed reports that Kylie was also in the home when the shootout happened, but it was just miles from her residence.
