Toronto nightclub shooting leaves 2 dead and 3 wounded

A shooting that started at a Toronto nightclub and then spilled onto the streets outside has left at least two people dead and three others wounded.

Police said they responded to a call about shots being fired at the Muzik nightclub on the grounds of Exhibition Place at approximately 3.30am local time.

The nightclub was hosting the official OVO Fest after-party featuring Toronto rapper Drake. It was not immediately clear if he was present during the shooting.

Victims were a man and woman in their 20s and 30s, Superintendent Frank Bergen said. He said three other people were taken to hospital with various injuries.

Police believe there could be more victims at other locations and urged citizens to contact authorities.

A similar incident occurred in front of Muzik last year when a 28-year-old man was shot after OVO Fest on August 5, 2014.
