TakeOff Dead at 28 after shooting in Houston Bowling Alley

Sources confirmed this morning that rapper TakeOff, part of the Migos trio, was shot dead at a bowling alley in Houston. According to a person with knowledge of the incident, it occurred in the middle of the night.

The Houston Police Department’s local medical examiner made a formal confirmation that TakeOff was fatally shot and killed at the scene. The police confirmed Quavo was with TakeOff at the time of the shooting but that he was unharmed. 

It is unknown at this time why the rapper was viciously gunned down or what actually happened.

Drew Findling, a lawyer for Takeoff and confidant to many rap stars, called the news of his death “a devastating loss, particularly for Atlanta.”

“When you’re around Takeoff, there’s a sense of peacefulness about his aura,” Mr. Findling said. “He listens to you, he looks at you, he’s more focused on what you have to say than what he has to say. The world was starting to learn about Takeoff. It was his time to shine.”

The music artist, real name Kirshnik Khari Ball, grew up in Georgia and was only 28 years old. The group Migos took off in popularity in 2013 when their song “Versace” went viral and peaked at number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100.
