Rapper A$AP Rocky has been charged with two counts of assault with a firearm, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced on Monday afternoon August 15. Rocky is set to be arraigned on Wednesday.
“Discharging a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have ended with tragic consequences not only for the person targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood,” Gascón said in a statement. “My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted.”
It was reported last week that the alleged victim is a form friend, A$AP Relli.
Back in April, A$AP Rocky was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport in connection with the shooting, which took place on November 6, 2021 in Hollywood. A$AP Rocky was arrested at the airport on his way back to the U.S. from Barbados, where he was on vacation with his fiancée, Rihanna.
