Anthony Soares

A member of rapper Drake’s OVO crew was killed in a drive-by shooting in Toronto, Canada on Thursday, September, 14. Toronto police hope surveillance footage of the shooting leads to the capture of the 2 gunmen.

Anthony “Fif” Soares, 33, was shot and killed as he waited to be buzzed into the lobby of an apartment building at 6 Glamorgan Ave at 2:54 a.m.

Surveillance cameras in the lobby and outside the building shows a white Ford Fusion driving slowly past the front of the building. Seconds later, 2 gunmen wearing hoodies and skinny pants run up and open fire.

One gunman paused to wipe his fingerprints off the shattered glass door before firing one last round into Soares.

The shooters jumped back into the Ford Fusion and fled the scene.

Soares was the second member of Drake’s OVO crew to die in the last several months.

Toronto Police Detective Sergeant Gary Giroux confirmed Soares was affiliated with Drake.

“Drake was a friend of his,” he said, adding that he hoped Drake uses his social media platform to “encourage anybody within the community to come forward with regards to any information that they may have that may assist in solving his friend’s murder.”

Drake paid tribute to Soares in an Instagram post last week:

“RIP to one of our family members… our brother… I still can’t even believe this morning was real. It was a honor to have shared years together and I will always keep your memory alive .. Forever Fif.”

    You ain’t no kinda good for this

  • akuakokoblogspotcom

    RIP. Drakes crew runs around like they are untouchable disrespecting everyone and claiming OVO and drake. As a Toronto resident I am not suprised, murder is still not the answer. Maybe now his nothing ass coat tail surfers will be more humble. Doubt it.

  • NIA

    Just horrible…..

    Blood sacrifices….. Not good to be friends with Entertainers or other Celebrities ..

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Girl set him up. RIP

  • PhillyFacts

    This was clearly a set up; if you didn’t know who was in the lobby you wouldn’t have known.Somebody dropped on him, he had on a tight hoodie n you couldn’t see his face. This is why I trust no one. The police don’t need help, they just need one good detective to evaluate the phone records of who he was visiting, or who he last talked and told them where he was going.

  • Pnthr

    According to the hoodlums Drake wasn’t really close to this guy. He just hires these thugs for protection which explains why he’s so paranoid and rolls with a 3 car entourage of security. I wonder if this good Jewish boy actor really feels this rap life is worth his life?

  • ThinkMeNice

    Is that his whole crew? Cause I know a few and they’re humble as phuck….just asking since I’m a Toronto resident and all. You do sound big mad though. Were you denied access to an afterparty? I don’t see how your commentary was tasteful in the least being that someone lost their life. But touché. You should try that humble you recommended.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Exactly some people have no soul.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    This is so sad. People cannot be trusted these days. I would never want to be protection for a celebrity.

    RIP

    Nah, I didn’t mean it that way.

    Good grief! They banging like that in Toronto??????? What in the world is Drake’ s “family” into?!

    Smh… RIP to this young man.

    Yeah, Somebody was like ‘he in the lobby now’ smh

  • https://vidozz.com/cyq ? King Kari ?????????

    Wow that was crazy! RIP!!!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Drake act like homie died of old age and natural causes. It is another malicious black on black murder. Drake should be held more responsible than saying “It was an honor…”. That’s pure BS. We need to stop murdering each other.

  • 1BlueStar

    Lord have mercy! That is horrible! I certainly smell setup

  • Keepin’IT100

    Wow..

  • Jignasty

    I hate to see this. I have been to Toronto twice in the past year(for Christmas and Caribana) and fell in love with the city. The low crime rate is one reason why I like it so much.

  • Dahl

    This is a shame. But the above pic appears to be a posthumous one, I’m so sorry to say…?

  • MythCalledLove

    Someone was still in the “getaway car” Either someone followed him or like some are saying this was a setup. More info for conspiracy theorist. This is a clear setup he was boxed in. The dummy that wiped his fingerprints I bet he didn’t do a good job. But with traffic cams, and businesses with cameras hopefully they hv been seen. When they get caught one is going to break. 2 guys that was serious

  • MythCalledLove

    I watched the video and at the end when they get back in the car looks like the full license plates may be seen. But my main question/thought is Are they women?? Or at one a woman because the torso area was kind of feminine.

  • Karen Brady

    too lazy to look it up so can someone pls remind me what OVO stands for?. This is awful and may he rest in peace. Terrible for his family to watch.

  • Karen Brady

    You are so wrong for that but oh so right.

  • hottlanta

    Isn’t Cardi B promoting the Crips gang? I saw her wearing her diamond ring with the Crips symbol wearing the red scarf and everything and folks talking bout the song has a good beat.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Auntie, you gonna do a post on Tiny and her high risk pregnancy?

  • Jussjess25

    You have to be a true monster to walk up to someone and take thier life.. for no reason. There is a special place in hell im sure . Smh rip

  • MistaO

    Drive by? No, a run up.

  • MistaO

    Huh??

  • Karla E

    That’s nothing but pure evil for anyone to just take a life like it’s nothing. What gets me though is when the very same people who have no problem taking a life, begs for mercy to live. Crying with snot running down their face.

    I would rather see you man up. You have no problem taking a life, then you have no problem losing yours.

  • Jay

    License plate is in full view when leaving.They will zoom an enlarge and there you have it. Caught. This will be your last drive by bro.

    DRAKE’S BLOOD SACRIFICE!!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    How do you know???

  • Music lover

    Tiny is pregnant again?

  • VM

    From her “red barz” song. I may be wrong but that’s what I got.

  • Look@m3

    OMG..that was kind of rough to watch but they out here killing in skinny leg jeans now. Someone has it out for Drake. 2 in a couple of months! I would stear clear foreal….that some bull right there then he had the nerve to whipe his fingertips off like he know what he doing. Idiots!

  • Look@m3

    EXACTLY got the nerve to whipe fingerprints off the door. Boy I love my people but we dumb as a doorbell!

  • Dowoop

    Lawd!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Smh. These artists want to be thugs so dam bad and actual thugs would give their left damn nut to have the access to the life that these clowns have. As much money as Drake as, he can afford to hire ex cops, a top notch security firm, ninjas, Russian assassins, etc. to guard him. Because this shyt is not it and it doesn’t even serve the intended purpose. I don’t believe Drake is a thug. Pablo Escobar could come back from the dead and start hanging out with Drake and he still wouldn’t have any street credibility in my eyes.

    Get money and leave the street life behinds. There’s nothing there but death and anguish

  • Dowoop

    Apparently Drake was a loser until he turned in Drizzy and he blew up. None of these people are childhood friends along for the ride. They are paid people.

  • Dowoop

    Low crime rate? We not as bad as the US but crime is still rampant here.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Wait..WHAT?, When, did that happen?

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I thought is was TOYA that’s pregnant.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I thought it was TOYA not Tiny.

  • country57

    Agree 100% Drake is a former child actor, plain and simple. He’s pretending to be a thug.

  • Youngblood

    I cant believe I just watched this.

  • Jen_no_juice

    I saw a post on FB yesterday with him and Tiny laying in bed talking about #8 on the way

  • Jen_no_juice

    It might be both

    ME too! I was kind of disappointed in myself for pressing the play button. That was too much! You think they getting us comfortable with the idea of watching a real murder? epecialy with FB live, Snapchat, IG live…

  • McKay

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

  • Jen_no_juice

    Why are they not charging as a hate crime??

  • Kanyade

    Saw that on the news this morning. SMH. So many unhugged children grow into undiagnosed men who latch on to twisted ideology and use that to justify senseless killing of victims. RIP to the two black men who were brutally murdered.

  • Rayne

    Crazy….

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    have mercy. smh

  • shun king

    i told yall black do crime to each other more than any other race

  • shun king

    black people do alot of crimes i think the vigilantes have start coming for them now

  • Kanyade

    “The first fatal shooting occurred Sept. 12 when 59-year-old Bruce Cofield, who was homeless, was shot to death. The second happened last Thursday night when 49-year-old Donald Smart was gunned down while walking to his job as a dishwasher at a cafe…”
    —————–

    So yeah, these black men were “[doing] a lot of crimes”, so they deserved to be shot. *sarcasm* Get outta here with that mess. These black people were minding their business, were targeted and were shot by a white person who “[did]” a lot of [crime]”.

  • You Could Never

    Who is this man to Drake? A homeboy? RIP to him.

  • CookieMobster

    Dang they killing folks in Canada now? I thought that was like one of the nicest countries in the world or something.

  • Tish

    I have to ignore these videos. They mess with me. I will not watch. Just like the girl from the hotels, I cannot watch. 🙁

  • around the way

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    Drake sacrificed his “friend”. Watch him blow up even more after this .

  • Ruby Taylor

    Voluntary segregation. People tend to live near people of the same race. Of course blacks will more than likely be killed by another black person. We spend a lot of our time around other black people. Same way crimes committed against whites are largely at the hands of other white people. Every race shares this exact same problem. Think your message through before delivering it. You sound stupid.

  • AListDiva29

    So sad nobody has any respect for human life anymore! This was definitely something personal against him, since they didn’t even try to rob him. Just very sad!

  • AListDiva29

    Same as all these NFL and NBA players that keep getting arrested. They have a talent and a shot at the good life, and are throwing it away to hang with low life’s!

  • Renee26

    and are serial killers…and killed off the natives when they came to US land…but of course none of that matters to this troll

    It’s not a drive by…they got out

  • McKay

    Toronto is a big city. Just like any other city there are good and bad areas.

  • VM

    It’s very dangerous because people will test you to see if you lackin. You know some glorify being affiliated with these gangs.

  • Shawty

    Sad…no regards for life.

  • ThinkMeNice

    I know ppl who live in Toronto government housing and have actually seen section 8 housing in the US it isn’t compareable. Section 8 is more comparable to the reservations. Stay mad though ???

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Thank you ?

  • McKay
