The jury deliberating in the case of People v. Tory Lanez had a few questions for the court. The jury is currently deliberating his fate in the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion on July 12, 2020.

On Thursday at 3:50 p.m. the jury asked for a better definition of “willfully” and “on purpose.” The court was not able to answer that question before deliberations ended for the day.

On Friday morning the jury asked a question about the meaning of “double action” in relation to the 9mm firearm used in this case. The prosecution firearms expert, LAPD firearms examiner Srinivasan Rathinan testified that a “double action” firearm needs a specific amount of force to be fired and the specific firearm in this case needed 8.5 pounds of pressure applied to the trigger to fire, greatly reducing the likely hood that this firearm could be fired accidentally.

The jury also had a question about Megan Thee Stallion and what she meant by “her team” after she was shot.

The jury received a read back of the necessary testimony by the court reporter.
