It’s been two years of build up with Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion’s dramatic episode on a summer night that has people awaiting the truth.
The July 2020 incident, has become a hip hop whodunit situation as Tory Lanez has denied the claim by Megan Thee Stallion that he shot her. The Canadian artist proclaims the actual shooter was Kelsey Harris. Megan former best friend pleaded the fifth but denied culpability, making this case even more chaotic. Crime reporter Meghann Cunniff has been a fixture in updates about this case as she has been in the courthouse at every turn. Today (December 21), closing arguments are to begin. It’s said that Lanez will not be testifying.
Following yesterday’s proceedings, there were questions about whether or not Lanez would take the stand. It was stated that if so, he would open up a can of worms: his music videos and lyrics would be used as evidence.An eye witness who lived near where the shooting occurred shook things up after they testified. Sean Kelly called the police after allegedly seeing the fray, and he was called as a defense witness. Yet, Kelly did anything but clear Lanez of responsibility.
He did, however, testify that he saw the first shot fired by a woman. Kelly also stated he witnessed Megan and Kelsey in a physical altercation. After Kelsey allegedly fired the first shot, Kelly said a short man shot at Megan multiple times, as well. It was argued by the defense that Lanez didn’t fire any shots.

Additionally, another report states that the fourth person with Megan, Lanez, and Harris was in court, but did not testify. The prosecution reportedly asked for more time, a week, but could agree with the defense. So, both sides rested their cases, and the jury has been instructed on how to proceed.
