33-year-old rapper A$AP Rocky has just been charged in relation to a shooting incident that occurred in Hollywood last year.
Rocky has been charged with assault with a firearm. The rapper whose real name is Rakim Mayers, is accused of pointing a gun at a former friend during a heated argument back in November and per prosecutors A$AP fired the gun twice with the victim sustaining injuries.
Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón says in a statement of A$AP’s charge: “Discharging a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have ended with tragic consequences, not only for the person targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood. My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted.”
