A male and a female have been killed and three others have been transported to different hospitals after a “sporadic” shooting at Drake’s OVO Festival after-party at Muzik in Toronto.
The nightclub is on the grounds of the Canadian National Exhibtion (CNE), across the bridge from the Molson Amphitheatre, where OVO ended its two-night run at 11 p.m. Monday night.
Toronto Police Superintendent Frank Bergen, of 14 Division, told media that “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.”
He said one victim died on the scene and the other was pronounced dead at the hospital. He said they were in their 20s and 30s but did not given further specifics.
Police believe there are other victims and are asking for anyone needing assistance or that have new information to come forward, by calling Homicide, Crime Stoppers or 14 Div. at 416 808 1400.
Homicide is carrying on the investigation with the assistance of others within the police service.
