RAPPER Tory Lanez may be charged with assault after Megan Thee Stallion was shot in the foot.
The LA County D.A's office is reportedly considering charging Tory with felony assault with a firearm after Megan was shot last month.
Megan had been riding with Tory in the car and was shot in the heel as she left the vehicle outside a party in a Hollywood Hills home.
Tory was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle, which is a felony.
The rapper, 27, posted $35,000 bail and was released the same day; he is scheduled to appear in court on October 13.
Now the Canadian musician may face an additional charge after prosecutors asked the LAPD to investigate the incident further, TMZ claimed.
If he is also charged with assault, Tory will say it was an accidental shooting, according to the site.
Back in July, video footage showed cops demanding Megan and Tory exit the car, with Megan – in a bikini – leaving with her hands in the air and calling out: "My hands are up."
However, the rapper took to Instagram to "set the record straight" after it was suggested she had cut her foot on glass, instead, revealing that she had "suffered gunshot wounds" and was taken to hospital by the police.
She posted: "I was never arrested. 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."
Alongside the caption, the WAP singer wrote a longer note which read: "The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight (sic).
"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."
Law enforcement sources told TMZ: "four shell casings were recovered from the scene outside the home."
Despite him not being officially tied to the shooting, sources claimed the rapper – whose real name is Daystar Peterson – allegedly shot Megan as she tried to leave his SUV.
Who ‘shot’ Megan Thee Stallion ‘multiple times’ and why do people think it was Tory Lanez?
Megan was shot in the foot during a shooting outside a Hollywood Hills home in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Tory Lanez's car, carrying Megan, was pulled over as cops arrived.
Video footage obtained by TMZ showed cops demanding the occupants exit the vehicle, with Megan – in a bikini – leaving with her hands in the air and calling out: "My hands are up."
However, the rapper took to Instagram to "set the record straight" after it was suggested she had cut her foot on glass, instead.
She revealed that she had "suffered gunshot wounds" and was taken to hospital by the police.
Megan was with Canadian singer and rapper Tory at the time she was shot.
Meg and Tory had been party-hopping all night, as earlier on Saturday they were with Kylie Jenner at her home, enjoying a pool party.
There are no confirmed reports that Kylie was also in the home when the shootout happened, but it was just miles from her residence.
Tory was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle, which is a felony, but he has not been connected to the shots that were fired at the party.
According to claims by a source with a direct connection to the case, an argument started after Tory, 27, and Megan, 25, left a Hollywood Hills party together in the SUV.
However, Tory pulled out his gun inside the car and allegedly hit Megan in the feet twice when she and her friend, Kelsey Nicole, wanted out of the vehicle.
Another source close to the Canadian rapper claimed it was an accident.
Megan most recently shared a photo of her gunshot wound after "sick" trolls accused her of making up her injury.
