AceShowbiz -Police in Los Angeles are trying to track down cellphone camera footage of the shooting incident that left Megan Thee Stallion injured amid reports suggesting rapper Tory Lanez pulled the trigger.
Sources are telling multiple news outlets the “Love Me Now?” star reportedly shot the 25-year-old “Savage” hitmaker during a dispute outside a Hollywood Hills party on Sunday morning (July 12).
“There is video and the police are investigating,” one source tells Page Six.

On Wednesday, July 15, Megan attempted to “set the record straight” about the incident on Instagram, writing, “On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me.”
“I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets. I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night. I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible.”
“This whole experience was an eye opener and a blessing in disguise. I hate that it took this experience for me to learn how to protect my energy.”
Megan has not identified the shooter.
