Video footage shows hit on a close friend of rapper Drake.
Canadian law enforcement officials have released graphic footage of the moment a close friend of superstar rapper Drake was fatally shot during a hit at a high-rise in Toronto.
Anthony Soares, 33, was struck multiple times by gunfire around 3 a.m. on September 14th by two armed men outside of the foyer of the building.
The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery but succumbed to his injuries soon after, TMZ reports.
Drake, a longtime friend of Soares, acknowledged him in an Instagram post after he was killed.
“RIP to one of our family members…our brother… I can’t even believe this morning was real,” the rapper said in the pot.
“It was an honor to have shared years together, and I will keep your memory alive.”
Authorities requested that Drake use his social media influence to help find the shooters.
“Many of the family members have met Drake, and I would encourage him, to encourage anybody within the community to come forward with any information they have that might assist in solving his friend’s murder,” Detective Sergeant Gary Giroux stated.
