Two people were shot dead at a party hosted by Grammy-winning rapper Drake at a Toronto nightclub early on Tuesday (Aug 4), police said.

The shooting started in the Muzik Nightclub and spilled out onto the street.

Police said on Twitter that a man and woman were killed and three people were taken to hospital with serious injuries.





It was not immediately clear if Drake, who earned a Grammy in 2013 for his second studio album Take Care, was at the party, which closed his annual Ovo music festival.

This is the second consecutive year a shooting has taken place at the annual party.

In the previous incident, a man was injured by gunfire and taken to hospital.
