Anthony Soares, 33, was gunned down in the lobby of an apartment building last Thursday.

The video released by police shows two men running toward a building and firing multiple shots at Soares through the glass doors.

Det. Sgt. Gary Giroux says Soares was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Giroux says he is hoping the video will spur the public to identify the alleged shooters and the motive behind the killing.


Police said Soares was a friend of the rapper Drake.

Drake took to Instagram to mourn Soares, who went by the name “Fif.”

“RIP to one of our family members…our brother… I still can’t even believe this morning was real. It was a honor to have shared years together and I will always keep your memory alive,” Drake wrote in a post on Instagram last week.
