Many famous people have been shot at and survived assassination attempts. But some celebrities have been shot under very different circumstances.

New details have emerged about the July 2020 night when rapper Tory Lanez allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion in the foot after a party. During a court hearing on December 14, LAPD Detective Ryan Stogner testified that Lanez—born Daystar Peterson—shouted "Dance, b—h!" before shooting Megan in the foot, as Rolling Stone reports.

"Megan immediately felt pain to her feet, observed blood, fell to the ground, and then crawled to an adjacent driveway of a residence…She described her injuries as bleeding profusely," Stogner testified. The detective also stated that Lanez "offered her money and begged her to please not say anything," according to Megan's account, adding that Lanez had mentioned he was already on probation. Megan also refrained from calling the cops immediately because, in the year of George Floyd's murder, she feared that police would kill Lanez on site. 

The judge decided to uphold the assault charges and move forward with a trial, which is now set to begin on January 13. Lanez is facing one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm in a manner that caused great bodily injury, and one count of carrying a concealed, unregistered weapon in a vehicle.
