2015 OVO Fest After-Party Shooting Leaves Two Dead, Three Critically Injured
Drake's OVO Fest has been marred by violence.
After the rapper sent lyrical shots at Meek Mill onstage during the music festival at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto on Monday night (Aug. 3), two people were killed and three others critically injured when shots were fired at an after-party at Muzik nightclub.
Billboard reports that the shooting occurred early Tuesday morning (Aug. 4) at Muzik, just a few miles away from the location where Drake closed out OVO Fest by further instigating his beef with Meek Mill through the use of hilarious memes on the big screen. The club was promoted as the official after-party for the concert with Drizzy serving as the host.
“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,” said Toronto Police Superintendent Frank Bergen, of 14 Division. “What occurred originally in the bar area had spilled out into the streets so south and north of this area we do have three separate crimes scenes."
A man and woman were killed, with one dying on the scene and another pronounced dead at the hospital. Both victims were in their 20s and 30s, according to Superintendent Bergen. “At this point we do know for certain that one or two [shootings] were in the nightclub and we believe the others were outside of that area. This is all unfolding now and we’re doing our investigation," he shared.
While three other people have been reported as critically injured, police believe there are more victims. Toronto police urge anyone needing assistance or that has information to call Homicide, Crime Stoppers or 14 Div. at 416-808-1400.
Superintendent Bergen did not disclose if a suspect in the shooting had been arrested at the scene.
