Drake lost his close friend Anthony Soares, 33, on Thursday, September 14. A shocking video has now been released showing the moment Soares aka FIF was ambushed and gunned down in Toronto. Toronto Police Service released the footage as it hunts for suspects. Officers have asked help from members of the public in identifying them. The shooting took place in the Kennedy Road and Glamorgan Avenue area at about 3 a.m. A police spokesperson said the victim got out of a car and walked into the lobby of a building before he was approached by two suspects armed with handguns.
The victim was shot at close range multiple times so that he didn’t stand a chance. The suspects then ran off but not before one of them wiped a door clean of fingerprints. Soares was taken to hospital but later died of his injuries.
Detective Sergeant Gary Giroux said at a press conference:
“The deceased is trapped between the inner foyer area and the offenders are on the other side of the glass. The two suspects run to the front foyer area, and from the outside start to fire at the deceased through the glass. The deceased falls to the floor of the foyer. The suspects continue to fire at the deceased while on the floor. Both of the suspects are armed with semi-automatic pistols.”
Drake took to Instagram to mourn the death of his friend. Posting a photo of the guy, he wrote:
