Drake, a longtime friend of Soares, honored him in an Instagram post after his death.
“RIP to one of our family members…our brother… I still can’t even believe this morning was real,” the rapper wrote.

“It was a honor to have shared years together and I will always keep your memory alive.”
Police asked that Drake use his social media reach to help track down the shooters.
“Many of the family members have met Drake and I certainly would encourage him, through his tweets, to encourage anybody within the community to come forward with regards to any information they may have that might assist in solving his friend’s murder,” Detective Sergeant Gary Giroux said.
