Takeoff, a beloved member of the hip-hop trio Migos, reportedly died in an early morning shooting in Houston on Tuesday, November 1. Multiple sources from law enforcement and witnesses at the scene confirmed the fatal incident that reportedly took place shortly after 2.30 am Tuesday, November 1, when authorities responded to reports of a man shot at a bowling alley called 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston.
Takeoff and his uncle Quavo, who is also part of the rap trio, were reportedly playing dice when an altercation broke out and someone opened fire, shooting Takeoff. Reports suggest he was fatally shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene.
Video footage obtained by TMZ Hip Hop showed Quavo, wearing an orange shirt, and others gathered around Takeoff's body. They tried to move him initially but then put him back down as Quavo yelled for someone to get help.
