Shooting At Drake's Toronto Home Amid Rap Beef, His Security Guard Injured

Source: TMZ

 

Drake's Toronto home was at the center of a shooting, which has left one person seriously injured -- this according to police ... who are on the scene and investigating.


Toronto's Police Operations account on X announced the news early Tuesday -- saying officers were attending to reports of a shooting near the intersection of Bayview Ave. and Lawrence Ave. ... which they say occurred around 2:09 AM local time.


So far, there's only word of one person who's been transported to the hospital ... and they say his injuries are serious. Unclear who exactly it may have been, or if there's any direct connection to Drake.



Cops say the suspect in question fled in a vehicle ... although, there's no official description available at this point. Police have taped off the area, and there are boots on the ground.


The shooting appears to be tied to Drake explicitly, as there's video of officers on his actual property that are starting to float around via local media outlets. Many are already jumping to the conclusion that it may all be related to the very public beef that he's in. Remember ... Drake's been ensnared in an ugly feud with Kendrick Lamar these past few weeks.


While most of the bad blood had stayed in music, there have been nasty allegations hurled on both sides -- Drake has claimed Kendrick is a woman beater, and that one of his kids isn't actually his. As for Kendrick ... he's made salacious accusations against Drake too.


Also, keep in mind ... Drake's mansion is very well known, and Kendrick used a photo of it as cover art for one of his recent singles ... in which he suggested sex offenders live there.



Drake hasn't addressed the shooting just yet, and neither has Kendrick. We've reached out to cops for more info ... but haven't heard back. Ditto for Drake's team ... nothing yet.

8:42 AM PT -- Cops just did a press conference addressing the shooting at Drake's house -- and they didn't have too much more to say than what's already been revealed.


They confirmed it was a security guard who got hit standing at the front gate ... and they say he's in serious condition. There's no description of the suspects or vehicle just yet -- and there's no known motive either. Unclear if Drake was home, but they say he's cooperating.


The cops were asked about the Kendrick Lamar beef, but they wouldn't speak on it either way. The police say their incident was caught on video -- and they're canvassing for more now.


7:25 AM PT -- Our sources now confirm the injured person is a member of Drake's security team. Police have yet to say if they believe the shooting is related to the Kendrick Lamar feud, but they revealed the victim suffered a gunshot wound to the upper chest, and it appears to have been a drive-by attack.



It is clear the rap beef is having an impact elsewhere -- in London, someone reportedly vandalized the OVO Store, spray painting "They not like us" on the store's front window.

The graffiti was clearly inspired by Kendrick's last diss track drop, "Not Like Us."


6:40 AM PT -- Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, Drake was not injured in the shooting. Unclear if he was home at the time of the incident, but we're told he has been in Toronto of late.
