Five days ago, Drake used his Instagram account to confirm that his friend Fif had died.  Although there were rumors that Fif had been gunned down in Toronto, it wasn’t confirmed until a short time later. Now, TMZ has obtained video of the moment Fif was shot and killed.

According to the site, Fif, born name Anthony Soares, was standing in the lobby of his Toronto apartment complex when two men walked up and fired at least 10 shots at him through the building. The video supports that claim, as it shows two hoodie-wearing men walking up to the outside of Fif’s lobby before firing their weapons and running. The two fled from the scene in a white sedan.

A short time after his death, Drake used his Instagram to announce the news, which spread quickly. “😔😔😔😢😢😢 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,” the Toronto rapper wrote in the caption for the post, which included an image of his fallen friend.

Not too much is known about Fif, but Drake mentioned him on his More Life song, “No Long Talk.” “Just know man like Fif, he’s a sickaz/You get tanned, he don’t miss tings,” Drizzy rapped on the song.

As of today, police have yet to identify any suspects in the killing. The video is below, and though it’s blurred, we have to warn you that it’s graphic.
