They say Stewart, 24, was found with gunshot wounds and pronounced dead at the scene.

The independent artist was building his name in Toronto’s rap scene following the debut of his first single No Light Bag in 2018.

He released the full-length album Made in Austria in September.

Police say they do not have any suspects in custody and are continuing their investigation.
