A man and a woman were shot and killed early Tuesday morning during a party following Drake’s OVO Festival in Toronto.
According to officials, a gunman started firing shots just before 3:30 a.m. inside Muzik nightclub, where Drizzy was hosting the official festival after-party. Kanye West also performed at the party before the shooting took place.
Police confirmed during a press conference this morning that one or two people were shot at the bar before the shooting continued onto the street. One man died on the scene and a woman succumbed to her wounds while at a nearby hospital.
Law enforcement also confirmed that there were three other people, two men and a woman, were injured and transported to local hospitals. It is unclear if Drake was inside the venue during the time of the shooting.
“We believe that there were some sporadic events that occurred elsewhere, that’s why we are asking that anyone who has information is to call our service at Homicide,” Supt. Frank Bergen said during a briefing.
This is not the first time the nightclub has been connected with a fatal shooting. Last year, also following the OVO Fest, a man was shot and injured outside the venue. And in February, 2013, a 19-year-old was shot and killed outside the club.
As investigators continue to search for a motive, we wonder: Does the shooting have anything to do with Drake’s recent rap beef with Meek Mill?
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
