Shooting outside Drake’s Toronto mansion injures security guard

A shooting outside Drake’s Toronto mansion early Tuesday seriously injured a security guard, police said.

The shooting happened just after 2 a.m. at a residence on Park Lane Circle, police said in a post on X.

A representative for Drake, the Toronto-born rapper who has made headlines recently over a rap beef with Kendrick Lamar, said he was not injured. It is not clear whether he was home at the time.

Officers found the security guard suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, Inspector Paul Krawczyk said at a news conference. The guard was standing outside a gate when he was injured.

Police said in a news release they believe he “was shot from a vehicle which then fled the scene.”

He remains in the hospital in serious condition, Krawczyk said.

Krawczyk said authorities do not know how many people were involved or what kind of car they were in, but he noted that the shooting was captured on video.

Police have been speaking with witnesses and canvassing the area for more video. Anyone with information is asked to contact the police department.

A motive in the shooting remains unclear “because it’s so early” in the investigation, Krawczyk told reporters. Detectives have been in communication with Drake’s team.
