ASAP Rocky has been charged with two counts of assault with a gun, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has announced.
The American rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, allegedly pointed a semi-automatic handgun at a victim during an incident last November.
The DA’s office said he also allegedly fired a weapon at the victim during a subsequent confrontation.
Mayers, 33, who recently welcomed her first child with Rihanna, faces two counts of semi-automatic assault with a gun for allegedly using a firearm in person.
“Shooting a gun in public is a serious offence that can have tragic consequences not only for the person targeted but also for innocent eyewitnesses while visiting Hollywood,” said Attorney General. George Gascon County said.
“My office has conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special weapons charge is warranted.”
Mayers will be scheduled for Wednesday, August 17 in Los Angeles.
The incident is still being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), Robbery/Murder Division.
