Lanez faces a maximum sentence of around 23 years if convicted in the case.

Detective Ryan Stogner of the Los Angeles Police Department said in a December 2021 hearing Megan told him that Lanez yelled ‘Dance, b****’ prior to discharging his firearm in the incident, CBS News previously reported.

Megan said she was ‘bleeding profusely’ from her feet and collapsed and crawled to the driveway of a nearby residence, Stogner told the court. Megan said that Lanez, whose full name is Daystar Peterson, ’emphatically apologized for what he did’ and ‘offered her money’ for her silence over the incident, the detective testified.

When Megan and a female friend had been pulled over the in the wake of the incident, the detective said that Megan told law enforcement and medical personnel that her injuries were the result of broken glass and not a gunshot.

The detective told the court that Megan told him she was ‘extremely scared and embarrassed’ and ‘scared [Lanez] was going to get in trouble’ and potentially shot when she admitted that Lanez had shot at her.

Stogner said that after undergoing surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Megan continues to have bullet fragments lodged in her feet and continues to go to physical therapy and have walking issues as result of the shooting.

Lanez, in the wake of his arrest, called Megan’s female friend and ‘continued to apologize for the incident that occurred,’ Stogner said.

In an Instagram Live clip Megan posted in the wake of the incident, she said, ‘Tory shot me – you shot me and you got your publicist and your people are lying … stop lying.’

Megan said that she was ‘incredibly grateful to be alive’ after authorities took her to a hospital where she underwent surgery for her injuries.

In an October 2020 piece in The New York Times, Megan said that she had been ‘the victim of an act of violence by a man’ and first stayed quiet about the incident in fear for herself and her friends.

‘Even as a victim, I have been met with skepticism and judgment,’ Megan said. ‘The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fears about discussing what happened were, unfortunately, warranted.’

Lanez said in a tweet last year: ‘The truth will come to the light … I have all faith in God to show that … love to all my fans and people that have stayed true to me & know my heart … a charge is not a conviction.’
