ASAP Rocky has been charged with two counts of assault with a gun, the Los Angeles County Attorney’s Office said.

The US rapper, real name Rakim Mayers, is said to have pointed a semi-automatic pistol at a victim in an incident in November last year.

It was previously reported that the 33-year-old and an accomplice allegedly got into an argument in Hollywood that escalated to gunfire and scrapes on the alleged victim’s hand.

The prosecution’s office alleged that Mayers fired the gun at the victim in a subsequent confrontation.

Mayers, who recently gave birth to his first child with Rihanna, faces two assaults with a semi-automatic firearm with allegations of personally using a firearm.

“Firing a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have had tragic consequences, not only for the person attacked but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood,” said District Attorney George Gascon.

“My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a specific firearms allegation was warranted.”

Mayers is scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles on Wednesday, August 17.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Robbery/Homicide Division.

In April, the rapper was arrested in connection with the shooting after he landed at Los Angeles Airport after traveling to Barbados with then-pregnant girlfriend Rihanna.

The police took the star taken into custody at the airport while LAPD officers searched his home at the same time.

Just last week, a man came forward claiming to be the victim of Mayer’s alleged shooting.

Corresponding Rolling Stoneformer A$AP Mob member Terell Ephron, aka A$AP Relli, said he was shot by the musician.

Ephron, Mayer’s high school best friend, reportedly went public as he plans to file a civil assault, assault and emotional distress lawsuit against the rapper.
