Megan Thee Stallion seen bleeding on sidewalk after being shot

Video footage has emerged showing rapper Megan Thee Stallion leaving bloody footprints on a sidewalk after she was ‘deliberately shot’ twice in the foot during a house party in the Hollywood Hills on Sunday. 

In the video, police are seen ordering the music sensation, 25, to get out of an SUV driven by her friend, fellow rapper Tory Lanez. 

As she makes her way along the concrete with her hands in the air, blood is seen coming from her foot. Tory was seen lying on the road near the side of the vehicle with his hands in the air. 

Police were reportedly responding to reports of gunfire in the area, when they stopped the SUV with the musicians inside.  

Tory was subsequently arrested on a concealed weapons charge. 

Megan says she was a ‘victim’ in the incident, and was not arrested for any crime. 

It is unclear who shot her or why. The LAPD says they are still investigating.

Megan revealed that she was shot in an Instagram post on Wednesday, contradicting initial reports that she had cut her foot. 

‘I suffered gunshot wounds as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me,’ Megan wrote, without saying who shot her or why.  

‘I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets,’ she further told her 1.5 million followers. 

‘I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery.’   

‘I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible.’ 

In her caption for the post, Megan added: ‘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.’  

Meanwhile, Tory, 27, was released after posting bail later on Sunday.

Megan and Tory were seen on social media attending a pool party with Kylie Jenner prior to the shooting. 

Kylie has not spoken of the incident.
