Tory Lanez has been charged with an additional felony in the criminal case that accuses of him shooting Megan Thee Stallion in 2020, Rolling Stone reports and Pitchfork can confirm. Amid pre-trial processes, the rapper was newly charged with discharging a firearm “in a grossly negligent manner which could result in injury or death to a person.” Pitchfork has contacted representatives and attorneys for Tory Lanez for comment.

Tory Lanez had been under house arrest in the weeks leading up to the trial. He was released from house arrest as jury selection begins. Lanez has pleaded not guilty to charges of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

Earlier this year, Megan Thee Stallion shared details about her injuries and experience with Gayle King, in her first television interview about the alleged shooting.
