Social Media Speculates The Weeknd Linked to Shooting at Drake’s Home

Speculation Abounds: The Weeknd Allegedly Linked to Shooting at Drake’s Residence

As news of a shooting outside Drake’s Toronto mansion surfaced, fans wasted no time in attempting to draw connections to The Weeknd’s manager, Cash XO. The incident, which left a security guard injured, occurred amidst Drake’s highly-publicized feud with Kendrick Lamar.

According to Fox 11, the LAPD received several 911 calls reporting gunshots near the 101 Freeway and White Oak Avenue at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Monday. One of the callers was the victim, who described the assailants as three men dressed in hoodies and surgical masks. Following the shooting, the suspects fled the area. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition but is anticipated to recover. Representatives from the LAPD’s West Valley precinct were unavailable for additional comments at this time.

ONLINE SLEUTHS

However, some online sleuths couldn’t help but wonder if the shooting was somehow related to the ongoing tensions between Drake and The Weeknd, both Canadian stars.

The rumor mill began churning when fans recalled an earlier shooting in April at Cash XO’s Los Angeles residence. This incident, too, involved a security guard being shot and resulted in a search for three suspects by the police. The victim, aged 37, described the attackers as wearing hoodies and surgical masks.

TORONTO SHOOTING

The recent shooting at Drake’s home, occurring around 2 a.m. on Tuesday, further fueled speculation. Although one suspect fled the scene, authorities confirmed that the victim remained in serious condition at a local hospital. Thankfully, Drake himself emerged unscathed, as confirmed by his representative. However, neither the representative nor the police disclosed whether Drake was present during the gunfire.

Inspector Paul Krawczyk addressed the media, stating that while Drake’s cooperation was commendable, the authorities were yet to determine a motive behind the shooting. Despite possessing video evidence of the incident, law enforcement encountered challenges regarding the quality of the footage.
