Takeoff, actual name Kirshnik Khari Ball

Takeoff, rapper from the group Migos, was shot and killed outside a private party

One-third of the platinum-selling rap trio Migos, Takeoff, was shot and died early on Tuesday in Houston, Texas, according to the authorities. He was 28.

According to Houston Police Department Chief Troy Finner during a press conference on Tuesday, at roughly 2:34 a.m. local time, police got a report about a gunshot that was in progress. When police got at the 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston, where a private party was taking place, they discovered a deceased male on the premises.

A 23-year-old male and a 24-year-old woman were also hurt in the shooting and went to the hospital on their own, according to Sgt. Michael Arrington of the police department’s murder branch. Their wounds weren’t life-threatening.

After the party finished, a sizable crowd gathered outside the building’s front entrance, where employees said a dispute broke out and resulted in the shooting. At the time of the incident, at least 40 persons were there, according to Finner.

According to Arrington, “a number of folks who were present fled the area and didn’t remain around to provide a statement.”

The deceased guy was recognised by Finner as Kirshnik Khari Ball, better known by his stage name Takeoff of the rap trio Migos.

In subsequent comments, Finner stated Takeoff was well-respected and nonviolent. She said, “I had many calls from Houston and outside of Houston, and everyone spoke of what a fantastic young guy he is, how calm he is, what a brilliant artist (he is).

“I wouldn’t anticipate him becoming engaged… No evidence exists to suggest that he was engaged in any illegal activity at the time, according to Finner.

Mayor of Houston Sylvester Turner reported that they had spoken with Takeoff’s mother.

“It makes no difference how well-known you are. You could not even be well-known,” Turner said. Anyone who dies is a life gone, and as a result, there are friends and family members who are grieving.
