Migos Rapper Takeoff Killed in Houston Shooting

Migos rapper Takeoff was killed in an early-morning shooting in Houston Tuesday, a representative confirmed to the Associated Press.

The 28-year-old, whose given name is Kirsnick Khari Ball, was shot and killed outside a downtown bowling alley where a private party was being held.

TMZ reports Takeoff and fellow Migos rapper Quavo were playing in a dice game when an altercation broke out at approximately 2:30 a.m.

Houston officers arrived at the scene, where they found one person who was identified as a Black man in his 20s suffering a gunshot wound to the head or neck. The victim, who officers did not immediately identify, was pronounced dead at the scene. A rep for the group later confirmed the victim was Takeoff.

Houston PD also confirmed two other victims were injured in the shooting and were transported to a nearby hospital. Their conditions remain unknown.

Just weeks ago, Quavo and Takeoff released their joint album, “Only Built for Infinity Links,” under the moniker “Unc and Phew.”
Police urge anyone with information about the shooting to contact Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS or the HPD Homicide Division at (713) 308-2600.
