Mayers smiled for the cameras as he left court. He looked nervous when a reporters asked if he was concerned that he might be found guilty like Tory Lanez.

Rocky was taken into custody on April 20, 2022 by an LAPD SWAT team when he and singer Rihanna landed at Los Angeles International airport after a vacation in Barbados.

Mayers was charged with two counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and released on bond. He pleaded no\t guilty in August 2022.

Video footage of the incident was made public for the first time in a Los Angeles courtroom on Monday, Rolling Stone reported.

The video clips show the rapper holding a gun during an argument with another individual. The actual shooting was not captured on video but gunshots can be heard in the background of one of the clips.

Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, sat at the defense table and viewed the videos during a preliminary hearing in a packed courtroom.

The video clips show a group of men arguing on the corner of Selma Avenue and Vista Del Mar Avenue in Hollywood, Calif. on Nov. 6, 2021.

Grainy footage from across a parking lot shows one person fall to the ground while others scattered. There is no sound.

“It’s a little blurry, but you can make out everybody,” Relli, born Terell Ephron, testified in court.

Ephron testified that he was the victim of an armed ambush. He said he and Mayers fell out before the shooting because he believed Mayers had failed to deliver on a promise to pay funeral expenses for one of their friends.

When Mayers’ attorney Joe Tacopina asked Ephron if he’d heard that Mayers had paid the friend’s funeral expenses, Ephron responded, “Yeah, I heard that later.”

Mayers could receive up to 24 years in prison if convicted.
