Washington: American rapper Nicholas Diego Leanos, popularly known as Lil Xan is being investigated for an alleged assault with a deadly weapon on a man.
The investigation comes after the alleged victim called out Xan for terming Tupac’s music “boring” last year.
Things quickly escalated with Xan pulling a gun out multiple times, and pointing it at the man, TMZ reported.
TMZ recently released a video showing Xan pointing a gun at a man.
However, Xan said he pulled out the gun in self-defence thinking he was about to be attacked.
Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Robbery-Homicide Division is looking into the incident and doing the investigation.
Cops may present the case to the District Attorney’s office after listening to Xan’s side of the story. If proved guilty Xan could be charged with a felony that carries a sentence of four years.
