Drake’s property taped off by police after his security guard was wounded in shooting in ritzy community

A security guard employed by the Canadian rapper Drake was seriously wounded in a shooting near the musician’s Toronto mansion early Tuesday.

The entrance to the sprawling $100 million property was taped off by police after gunfire around around 2:10 a.m., CBC reported.

The suspect fled the ritzy Bridle Path neighborhood in a vehicle, and there was no immediate description of either available, the Toronto Police said.

The victim appeared to have been one of Drake’s security guards, who was injured in what appeared to be a drive-by shooting, a police source told CBC.

He suffered gunshot wounds to the upper chest, and was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery.

Drake – who is currently in a heated feud with recording artist Kendrick Lamar – has agreed to cooperate with authorities, sources told CTV News Toronto.

The rapper’s 50,000-square foot manse, known as “The Embassy,” previously made headlines when it was featured in Architectural Digest in 2020.

“Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years. I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel,” the former “Degrassi” star told the outlet of putting down roots in his native city.
