According to multiple reports, the “Say It” rapper’s lawyer appeared on his behalf in a Los Angeles courtroom where she entered a not guilty plea to using a semiautomatic firearm to shoot and injure the “Savage” singer.
As we reported, Lanez was ordered by the court to stay 100 yards away from Megan, and that order remains in effect at this point. The rapper was charged with one felony count of both ‘Assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

If convicted on all charges, the 28-year-old rapper faces up to 22 years in prison.
According to prosecutors, Lanez was riding in an SUV with MTS and one of her friends when the group “got into an argument” around 4:30 am in Hollywood. At that point, they accuse Tory of firing the gun and striking the ‘WAP’ rapper in the feet. She was taken to a local hospital and treated for gunshot wounds.
At the time, Megan did not tell the LAPD officers on the scene that she was shot by Lanez just that her injuries may have been caused by broken pieces of glass.
Megan described the terrifying incident on Instagram several days later, saying, “I was shot in both of my feet and I had to get surgery to get the sh– taken out, get the bullets taken out.”
She continued, “It was super scary. It was like just the worst experience of my life. Thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones, they didn’t break tendons. Where the bullets hit at, it missed everything.”
Megan has not revealed the circumstances of the argument that led up to the shooting, but she has shot down a few rumors including, “I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot.”
Tory is due back in court in the coming months to face the charges.
