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.”
