During the seventh day of the Tory Lanez trial, a witness claimed to have seen a woman firing off a first shot in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting. According to Law & Crime senior reporter Meghann Cuniff reported that defense witness Sean Kelly watched the altercation from the window of his home.
Cuniff tweeted, “Kelly said he awoke to noises and saw two women violently fighting by the car. He saw a flash and believes it was coming from one of the girls” Cuniff added Kelly's quote,”'They were pulling their hair and hitting each other. It was quite violent.'”
Cuniff continued, “Kelly said he saw the driver exit wearing all black, and he joined the fray. Kelly was scared, and he asked his son to come into his room. He testified several times that he saw a muzzle flash and heard what he thought were fireworks, but believes the flashes were from a woman.”
Cuniff added went on, tweeting, “Did you see a muzzle flash?” Tory Lanez's defense attorney George Mgdesyan asked. 'Yes,' Kelly answered.” He added: 'About the same time that the smallest individual got out of the car.' It only worsened for Mgdesyan. Kelly said the small guy 'got out about that time, all shouting.'”
Kelly would go on to detail what the “smallest guy” was doing during the fight. Cuniff tweeted, “Kelly said after the smallest guy got out of the car, 'I saw more flashes.' He stuck with his testimony that the flashes started with “the girls,” and he said he never heard anyone say, 'Dance, b*tch' (which is what Meg testified Tory said before he opened fire).”
Cuniff continued, tweeting, “Kelly said the shorter guy 'was very angry' and was shouting. He said the flashes “came from him” but cautioned, 'I never saw a gun.'”
Cuniff added, “Still, after all this, Kelly repeatedly testifies that he believes a woman fire the first shot. 'I believe I saw the girl shoot first.' But he didn't know she had a gun at the time. “'I believed it was fireworks.'”
Kelly later said that he did see “the smaller guy”with a gun and subsequently saw two people beat down a woman who was on the ground injured.
Cuniff tweeted,”That's when Mgdesyan asked Kelly, 'Sir, did you see the shorter guy with a gun in his hand?' and Kelly answered, 'Yes.' Then everyone started beating one girl, and Kelly said 'to me, it appeared that they were going to throw her in the river. It appeared to me when I was on the phone that they were trying to kill her,'” Kelly said. He said he heard the driver say the police are coming, and they put the woman in the Escalade and left. Then came the cross. (All that above is from direct by Tory's lawyer.).”
