Man Shot Dead Leaving Drake's Toronto Restaurant
Toronto Police have reported that a man was shot and killed after leaving Drake's Pick 6ix restaurant on Sunday (May 20).
The man, who has been identified as Jaiden Jackson, left the restaurant at approximately 9pm when two males jumped out of a black Honda Civic and opened fire. The 28-year-old victim fled into an underground parking ramp, but was chased by the driver and two gunmen who continued to fire shots.
Jackson was found in a critical condition by officers, and subsequently pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Toronto police are still looking for the three suspects in connection with the shooting.

Drake hit Instagram on Monday (May 21) to upload an image of him at Pick 6ix, but the rapper has yet to comment publicly on the previous night's events.
This isn't the first time that Drake has been somewhat connected to a shooting. In 2015, two people were shot and killed at an OVO Fest afterparty, hosted by the Toronto rapper.
