Although police were able to obtain footage of the alleged shooting, they were unable to locate the weapon in question during last week’s raid on his Los Angeles home, where multiple weapons were found, sources told TMZ in April.

Police were able to determine at the scene that the weapons in Mayer’s home were not those used in the shooting, as the caliber of the weapons did not match the shell casings found at the crime scene, the website said.

After running the serial numbers, the police reportedly determined that all of the guns in Mayer’s home had been obtained legally and did not take any of the guns to the station.

Rocky was arrested over the incident moments after landing at LAX with his then-pregnant singer Rihanna after enjoying a getaway to Barbados.

The performer, who grew up in the Harlem borough of New York City, was also charged with attempted murder when he was 16.

Mayers, who started selling drugs in his youth, was reportedly bullied by an older man. He went to the alleged bully’s house to confront him and eventually shot him.

“He tried to approach me in front of some ladies. And I was small. He was a little older than me,” Mayers said two years ago, describing the incident on… Untold Stories of Hip Hop.

The teen, who carried a gun for protection, said he thought the alleged bully was reaching for a weapon. He claimed he never intended to shoot the man.

“I’m just starting to let go,” Mayers said of the confrontation. ‘I didn’t want to hit him. They hit me with attempted murder first, then it kept falling off.’

Mayers was arrested shortly after the shooting and spent time in the city’s notorious prison on Rikers Island. However, due to his age and the nature of the incident, the charges of attempted murder were lowered.
