Police identify two dead in Muzik nightclub shooting

Last Updated Aug 5, 2015 at 3:43 pm EST

Toronto police have identified the two victims of a fatal shooting at Muzik nightclub.

Duvel Hibbert, 23, of Brampton and Ariela Navarro-Fenoy, 26, of Toronto both died.

Hibbert was found dead at an outdoor patio at the club while Navarro-Fenoy was found near the Dufferin Gates with gunshot wounds and died in hospital. Three others were injured.

Police believe there may be more victims and are asking witnesses and victims to come forward.

The violence happened around 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday at an after-party for Drake’s OVO Fest.

There were two separate shootings, Insp. Peter Moreira said. One was inside the club, located on the Exhibition Place grounds, and the other was north of the Dufferin Gates. Police have not determined whether the two shootings are related.

Police are looking for two men but said they were not suspects.

One man has a skinny build and brown skin. He is approximately five-feet 10-inches tall, between 24 and 28 years old, and was wearing a yellow and burgundy plaid button-up shirt.

The other man is black, around six-feet tall, and about 25 years old. Police said he had a fresh buzz cut and was wearing a light-purple crewneck sweater with a colourful design on the front.

One man flagged down an ambulance near Dufferin and College streets, Moreira said. Police are looking for anyone who helped that man.

Police are also asking anyone with photos or video from any point in the night to share their footage with police at bit.ly/TPSHomicide.

In a statement, Muzik said it had “73 professionally trained” security guards on duty, which included “15 specially trained guards who conduct body searches, including the use of metal-detecting wands, on all patrons entering the property.”

The club said it also had 10 armed Toronto police officers on paid duty as part of the security detail.

Muzik’s owner, Zlatko Starkovski, said the club is co-operating with police and has “full confidence they will get to the bottom of this horrific incident and bring these people to justice.”

Police said it was unclear how a gun got into the club with such tight security and so many officers outside, but noted that the large area also has a pool that is surrounded by a fence, but “is not airtight.”
