Shocking video shows rapper Megan Thee Stallion leaving bloody footprints on a sidewalk after she was ‘deliberately shot in the foot twice’ on Sunday at a Hollywood Hills house party.
The vision sees the police ordering the music sensation, 25, to get out of an SUV driven by her friend, fellow rapper Tory Lanez.
As she walks over the concrete with her hands in the air, blood is seen from her foot. Tory was seen lying on the road next to the side of the vehicle with his hands in the air.
Police reportedly responded to reports of gunshots in the area when they stopped the SUV with the musicians in it.
Tory was subsequently arrested on the basis of a hidden weapon load.
Megan says she was a “victim” of the incident and was not arrested for any crime.
It is unclear who shot her or why. The LAPD says they are still investigating.
