The shooting took place at 2:09 am (local time) in which a security guard sustained critical injuries and was rushed to a hospital where he is currently undergoing treatment. The suspect reportedly fled in a vehicle after firing the shots and no description of them has been received by the cops yet.

Several bullet shells were seen scattered on the side of the road near Drake’s residence which the police marked in orange circles. Public broadcaster CBC reported that Drake’s property was under police surveillance after the shooting and that the man who sustained injuries was a security guard.
