Rapper Megan Thee Stallion said Wednesday that she was shot multiple times on Sunday, but expects to fully recover.

"I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me," the 25-year-old Texan whose legal name is Megan Pete wrote in an Instagram post, without saying who shot her or why. "I'm incredibly grateful to be alive and that I'm expected to make a full recovery."

Los Angeles police had no immediate comment on the incident in the Hollywood Hills early Sunday. But Officer Jeff Lee confirmed that rapper Tory Lanez, who was with Pete that evening, was arrested on a concealed weapons charge.

A video apparently showed her bleeding from her foot after police stopped a car also containing rapper Tory Lanez. Police said one person had suffered "a foot injury".
