Two People Dead, Others Injured In Drake OVO After-Party Shooting
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?
