A shooting outside his luxurious Bridle Path mansion early Tuesday morning, caused Drake’s security guard to sustain serious injuries, Toronto Police have confirmed. 

Inspector Paul Krawczyk of the Integrated Gun and Gang Task Force said in a media conference Tuesday morning outside of Drake’s residence that police responded to reports of a shooting outside the home at approximately 2 a.m. 

Drake’s security guard sustained serious injuries during the shooting and was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“I know there’s a lot of interest in this incident, and I hope you can also appreciate that information is very limited at this time,” Krawczyk told reporters. 

The security guard was standing outside the gates in front of the residence when the shooting took place, Police confirmed, but refused to confirm whether or not Drake was at home during the incident. 

Krawczyk added that the rapper’s team is fully cooperating with police. 

Despite video footage of the shooting, there is no description of the suspects or the vehicle involved at this time, police said.

Krawczyk continued to stress that the high-profile incident is no different than any other Toronto police investigation. 

Amid a rap beef between Drake and Los Angeles rapper Kendrick Lamar the shooting occured.

Lamar recently used a satellite view of Drake’s Bridle Path mansion covered in U.S. sex offender registry map pins for the cover art of his diss track, “Not Like Us.” 

When asked about the rap beef, Krawczyk told reporters that although being aware of the situation, police do not have a motive at this time.

“I cannot speak to a motive at this time, because it’s so early,” he said. “But as we get information, we will share it with you.”

Amid ongoing investigation, Toronto police have since taped off the “Family Matters” rapper’s home.
