Classified speaks on Nova Scotia mass shooting
This past weekend, Canada experienced it’s deadliest mass shooting in history as at least 18 people were killed across 16 different crime scenes.
The gunman, identified by police as 51-year-old denturist who we won’t be naming, started his murderous spree in Portapique, Nova Scotia (130 kilometres northwest of Halifax), and died in a standoff with police near Enfield, Nova Scotia (roughly 35 kilometres from Halifax).
While authorities are making sense of what happened, and even still figuring out the total number of victims, we’re happy to report that Canadian rapper and Enfield resident Classified has checked in to report he’s ok.
On Instagram, Class posted the following message:
“Thanks to everyone who checked in on me and my family yesterday. We are safe. But unfortunately 16 people aren’t. Prayers for them and my friends who lost a family member or friend. Coward act by a pathetic piece of shit that ended in Enfield yesterday. Don’t know what else to say.”
The comments are filled with Class’ fans and music industry colleagues sending their love. As a friend located in Nova Scotia pointed out to us earlier, due to the random nature of the crime, a lot of people won’t even know they’ve lost someone yet.
Our condolences the family and friends of the victims.
