DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Rapper A$AP Rocky has been charged with assaulting his former friend with a semiautomatic firearm during a confrontation last November, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said Monday. The rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayer, faces two counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm with allegations of personally using a gun, prosecutors said in a statement.
In a statement, the district attorney’s office said that on November 6, 2021, Mayers got into a “heated” discussion with a former friend in Hollywood and allegedly pointed a semiautomatic handgun at them. In a second confrontation, he reportedly drew his firearm and fired twice “in the victim’s direction.”
Discharging a gun in a public place is a severe offense that could have ended with tragic consequences not only for the person targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood,” Gascón said.
The Los Angeles Police Department is continuing to investigate the incident.
The rapper is best known for his debut album “Long. Live. A$AP” and has received two Grammy nominations. He and superstar entrepreneur Rihanna had their first child together earlier this year.
