A security guard was shot and seriously wounded in Toronto’s upscale Bridle Path neighborhood early Tuesday morning. The violent incident drew attention not least because of its unusual location, right next to rapper Drake’s mansion, reports CBC.

Of course, the immediate question on many people’s minds is whether the event could be linked to the much-publicized conflicts within the rap scene that have been making a lot of headlines recently, namely the now-infamous beef between Drake and Kendrick Lamar.

Police reports indicate that the incident took place at 2:10 a.m., near an intersection very close to Drake’s home. Emergency services quickly arrived on the scene and found an adult male with gunshot wounds.

The victim was immediately transported to the nearest hospital. Although seriously wounded, his life is not believed to be in danger.

The suspects are believed to have fled in a car, the description of which has not yet been released by Toronto police. However, officers have reportedly quickly surrounded the successful rapper’s home and will be patrolling the surrounding area throughout the day.

The shooting occurred very shortly after the rapid acceleration of the conflict between Drake and Kendrick Lamar.

In just a few weeks, the frequency of outbursts has multiplied and tension is now at its highest between the two rappers.

However, there is no evidence to suggest that the incident early Tuesday morning was related to this musical feud.

The investigation is still ongoing, and the local community and Drake fans around the world are understandably concerned about the violence.
