District Attorney George Gascón has issued a statement on the verdict:
After nine days of testimony in the Tory Lanez assault trial, a California jury has found the rapper guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

The trial, which kicked off on Dec. 12, revealed shocking revelations of what occurred during the chaotic summer night including an argument between the two artists about the success of their careers.
During the trial, the jury heard testimony several people who were present during that night including Megan, her former best friend, Kelsey Harris and her former stylist, EJ King.
Lanez decided not to take the stand along with his driver who was also present at the time of the incident .
In an interview with the Off the Record podcast, Lanez acknowledged the trial and the time behind bars he was facing. Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, faces up to 23 years in prison.
