A$AP Rocky Must Face Trial On Charges Of Firing Gun At Childhood Friend

Rapper A$AP Rocky will stand trial on charges that he fired a pistol in a feud with a former childhood friend, a Los Angeles judge has ruled.

The decision came on Monday during the second day of a preliminary hearing, which was attended by A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers.

Prosecutors say Mr Mayers, 35, pointed and fired a handgun at Terell Ephron two years ago, causing minor injuries.

Mr Mayers, who has two children with singer Rihanna, has pleaded not guilty.

The Grammy-nominated Mr Mayers, who has had two US number one albums, is facing two felony counts of assault with a firearm.

He could receive up to nine years in prison if found guilty.

Mr Ephron, who was part of the A$AP Mob hip-hop collective and has known him since their time together at a New York high school, alleges separately in a lawsuit that he is the victim of assault and battery, negligence and emotional distress.
