According to CBC News in Toronto, Soares was gunned down by two men after entering the lobby of a building in the early hours of the morning on Thursday.

Police and medics were dispatched to the scene and transported Soares to a nearby hospital.

Sadly, he was later pronounced dead by doctors. He was 33 years old.

A motive in the case is still unclear.
