Drake's Toronto mansion has been the site of two incidents prompting police involvement this week.

CityNews reports a break-in attempt at the Bridle Path property around 2 p.m. on May 8, with police back at the residence just one day after a security guard was shot outside.


“Officers were called after a person attempted to gain access to the property,” according to a police spokesperson. “The person was apprehended under the Mental Health Act.”

Police have not released any further details regarding the apprehended person, or any relation between the break-in and the shooting the day before. The shooting took place after 2 a.m. on May 7, with the victim taken to hospital for serious injuries.

A Google Maps image of Drake's Toronto home was featured on the cover of Kendrick Lamar’s "Not Like Us" diss track aimed at Drake, part of a heated battle between the two rap titans.

The location of the residence was already well known in Toronto, with the house featured in the video for Toosie Slide in 2020.

Police have said it's too soon to comment on a motive behind the shooting.
