Two people killed in shooting at Drake afterparty in Toronto

August 4, 2015

Two people were killed and three others were critically injured at an afterparty for Drake’s OVO Festival in Toronto.

Drake’s festival took place over the weekend in Toronto, drawing to a close on Monday night (August 3) with Drake performing a headline set.

Billboard reports that a man and a woman were killed in a shooting in and around Toronto nightclub Muzik in the early hours of Tuesday morning (August 4). Both the deceased and the three other victims are believed to be in their 20s and 30s.

A member of the Toronto police force described the incident as “a sporadic shooting”, adding: “What occurred originally in the bar area had spilled out into the streets, so south and north of this area we do have three separate crimes scenes.”

“At this point we do know for certain that one or two [shootings] were in the nightclub and we believe the others were outside of that area. This is all unfolding now and we’re doing our investigation.”

Police believe there could be additional victims and are seeking information from the public.
