The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said in a statement that Linz, whose legal name is Day Star Peterson, is facing one count of assault with a semi-automatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded firearm hidden in a car.
Prosecutors said in the statement that Linz, 27, was riding in an SUV in the Hollywood Hills on July 12 when he got into an argument with a 25-year-old woman. The statement said he was accused of shooting her in the feet several times when she got out of the car, hitting her.
Megan Thee Stallion, whose real name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, has been identified as “Megan P” in the criminal complaint.
CNN reached out to representatives of Linz and Megan Thai Stallion for comment.
She has spoken on social media about the “extremely frightening” shooting and thanked her fans for their support, but at first she did not name the person who said he shot her.
Linz’s trial is scheduled for October 13th. If convicted on both counts, Linz could face a maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in state prison.
