It continued: ‘My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted.’

A$AP Relli, whose real name is Terell Ephron, claims the rapper shot him in the area of ​​Selma and Argyle Avenues in Hollywood following an argument.

Rocky is accused of approaching an Relli on the street around 10.15pm on November 6 and firing a handgun at him three or four times.

One of the bullets reportedly grazed the Relli’s left hand and he later sought medical treatment. The LAPD said at the time that Relli sought medical treatment following the shooting.

After the shooting Rocky and two other men, who had reportedly been walking with, fled the scene.

Authorities collaborated with Relli and were ultimately able to name Mayers as a suspect in the shooting.

The case is still being investigated by the LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Unit.
