Rapper Takeoff of the The Migos trio was fatally shot and killed this morning in an altercation following a dice game in Houston, Texas.

Houston Police Chief Troy Finner joined Mayor Sylvester Turner and members of the HPD Homicide Department for an afternoon press conference addressing the killing of Migos member Takeoff at 810 Billiards & Bowling early Tuesday morning.

“Let me speak to the human element first before we do anything,” Finner said to media gathered for the conference. “I spoke to this young man’s mother just an hour ago. I want everyone to understand the pain and suffering of a mother.”

Finner stated that officers received calls about a shooting at the downtown bowling alley at approximately 2:34 a.m. and that law enforcement arrived shortly thereafter to find a single male deceased outside the venue’s third-floor entrance.

Finner turned the conference over to Houston Police Sergeant Michael Arrington, who confirmed the incident had occurred after a private event that took place at 810 Billiards & Bowling.

“Employees notified us of an incident after the party had ended,” Arrington said. “A large gathering of about 40 individuals gathered outside the building…an argument broke out, and a shooting took place as a result of that argument.

Arrington said that majority of individuals fled following the shooting, which officials stated involved “at least” two gunmen firing rounds.

“People fled after the shooting and did not stick around to offer statement,” Arrington said. “All we can hope is you all will reach out and give us evidence to solve the death of Takeoff.”

Mayor Turner then offered condolences to the family of Takeoff, born Khirshnik Khari Ball.

“I want to extend my condolences to the mom of Takeoff, to all the family members of Takeoff,” Turner said. “It doesn’t matter how famous you are, anybody who loses his or her life, is a life lost.”

We here at AG Entertainment send our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased and want to recognize Takeoff as one of the most influential rap artists who helped shape the culture for the last decade, rest in peace Takeoff.
