Suspect Arrested After Attempted Break-In At Drake’s Home In Toronto

Law enforcement officials were dispatched to the rapper's mansion after an individual "attempted to gain access to the property” on May 8.

A day after the shooting outside of Drake’s home in Toronto which wounded one of his security guards, another person was arrested by law enforcement on Wednesday (May 8) for attempting to enter his estate, reports USA Today.

The Toronto Police Service was dispatched around 2 pm to Drake's mansion after an individual "attempted to gain access to the property," police spokesperson Ashley Visser said.

Because the person was apprehended under the Ontario Mental Health Act, where some incidents are not treated as criminal cases, police did not share the individual's identity with the public.

Under the act, “authorities may take a person in custody to a physician for examination” if law enforcement believes that the person in question is "apparently suffering from a mental disorder" which could result in serious bodily harm.

This is the latest incident that has happened at The 6 God’s home. On Tuesday (May 7), shooters in an unidentified vehicle fired shots at the entrance of Drake’s home. The security guard who was struck was rushed to the local hospital to treat his serious injuries and he remains under care.

According to Inspector Paul Krawczyk, a member of the gun and gang task force, no motive has been determined in the investigation.

“I cannot speak to a motive at this time, because it’s so early, but as we get information we will share it with you,” Krawczyk said at a news conference.

Per the report, the suspects left the scene in a van and still have not been apprehended. Law enforcement officials also said the shooting was captured on surveillance video.

The incidents at Drake’s home have occurred while he has been embroiled in a bitter rap battle with Kendrick Lamar. So far, Drake has released several diss tracks including “Push Ups,” “Family Matters,” and “The Heart Part 6.” Lamar has responded with “Euphoria,” “6:16 in LA,” “Meet the Grahams,” and “Not Like Us.”

According to Toronto law enforcement, it is too early to tell if the incidents were connected to his beef with Lamar.
