Megan Thee Stallion is a college student herself, enrolled part-time at Texas Southern University where she's pursuing a bachelor's degree in health administration, according to People.

While the "Savage" rapper previously refused to name her shooter, she later confirmed that it was indeed Tory who shot her at her feet.

XXL has reached out to the LAPD as well as a rep for Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez for a comment. In addition, he faces a gun allegation and a charge that he personally inflicted great bodily injury.

Lanez, a 27-year-old Canadian rapper and singer whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, is due to be arraigned Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Tory Lanez faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison if convicted for the crimes.

She said from the beginning that she expected to fully recover but said in subsequent posts that the shooting, which required her to have surgery to have the bullets removed, was "super scary " and "the worst experience of my life", and she felt blessed that the gunfire hit where it did. "The victim exited the vehicle and Peterson is accused of shooting several times at her feet and wounding her", read the office release.

The Los Angeles Police Department, Hollywood Division, is continuing its probe into the matter. Then in August, the "W.A.P." rapper outright accused Lanez of being the culprit of her injuries on Instagram Live.

Lanez was arrested the night of the incident but was released on bond. However, the shooting was said to have occurred before Lanez was detained. "Tory shot me, ' and urged him to 'stop lying" about the incident. During her performance, she called out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron in a message that appeared on the wall behind her, criticizing how his office handled the Breonna Taylor case, in which the officers who shot Taylor were not charged with homicide.

Megan later than posted photos of her injured foot on Instagram but soon deleted them. The hour-plus long album contains song after song packed with deeply defensive lyrics and frequent verbal jabs at Megan, his critics, "friends turning into enemies" and the like.
