Two people are dead and others were injured in a shooting at the Muzik nightclub last night at around 3 a.m. Drake was hosting an official OVO Fest afterparty at the club, but it’s unclear if he was still there when the shots were fired.
Billboard reports that Toronto Police Superintendent Frank Bergen confirmed that one shooting victim died at the scene and the other passed away at the hospital. Three others were reportedly injured and taken to hospitals. Bergen issued the following statement to media:
This is a sporadic shooting that did occur just before 3:30 this morning at 15 Saskatchewan. It’s the Muzik Nightclub. A well-run event with lots of police officers in and around the area, culminating on a large evening event that occurred over at the OVO Festival. 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.
