One man has been sent to hospital after a shooting near rapper Drake’s mansion in Toronto. Police have taped off the area as they continue to investigate.

Here are the latest developments (all times eastern):

11:12

There is a large police presence outside Drake’s home in the affluent Bridle Path neighbourhood, with multiple cruisers seen on the street.

Officials have not confirmed any connection between Drake and the shooting, or whether he was home at the time. Representatives for Drake did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Police are expected to provide an update to the media on the scene.

10:30

One man was rushed to hospital after officers responded to a shooting around 2 a.m. near Post Road and Park Lane Circle, Toronto police said. The intersection is just north of Drake’s mansion.

Paramedics say they transported a man to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

A suspect fled in a vehicle, police said without offering any descriptions.

The incident comes amid a rap feud between Drake and Kendrick Lamar that hit a fever pitch in the last week as both released multiple tracks with unsubstantiated allegations about each other.

There is no indication the feud is connected to the shooting.
