Takeoff was shot and died in Houston, and an investigation is currently underway.
The rapper from the Migos was shot and killed outside 810 Billiards & Bowling, according to a press conference conducted by the police on Tuesday afternoon.
Following a private function at the bowling alley, police were alerted to a “shooting in progress” shortly after 2:30 a.m.
The first thing Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said was that he spoke to Takeoff’s mother, who had flown in from out of town.
He praised Takeoff before saying, “We stand with them in this city and this police department.
“I had a lot of calls from Houston where people praised this young man for being wonderful, quiet, and artistic.”
The shooting, according to Finner, was not intended to harm the hip-hop scene. He claimed that the hip-hop scene “sometimes gets a poor rap.” We must regulate our own behavior. Such a large number of talented people. Make sure to unite and prevent anyone from destroying that sector.
Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Homicide Division Sgt. Michael Arrington.
Two individuals, a 23-year-old male and a 24-year-old female, were sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.
Approximately 40 individuals congregated close to the venue’s front door after the private party concluded.
Before they escaped the site, there was an argument and gunfire. Police are requesting that anyone with knowledge come forward to assist them in cracking the case.
Arrington stated, “We want to bring this family justice.” “They’re going through a lot right now, and all we can do is hope that y’all will reach out and help us in any way to lead to evidence that will help us apprehend and seek charges and an arrest of the individual guilty for Takeoff’s death,” the statement reads.
“Somebody knows exactly who it was,” continued Finner, “and I’m extremely convinced that somebody’s going to stand up.”
TMZ claims that at least two separate firearms were used to fire more than 10 bullets. Prior to bullets being fired, Quavo can be heard arguing with someone in the footage.
Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, SZA, Ciara, Desiigner, and Rich the Kid, who wrote a touching tribute to his “best friend,” are among the hip-hop artists who are mourning the tragic loss.
According to Rich the Kid, “Today I lost more than a sibling.” “My twin, my best buddy, everything, I can’t believe it,” the speaker said.
The most modest person I know used to easily share shoes and clothes before we became successful! You already make me miss you; you didn’t earn that! I’m so in love with you, brother, that I can’t stop crying.
