Famous American rapper Kirshnik Khari Ball aka Takeoff has been confirmed dead following a shooting in Houston. Born in 1994, Takeoff was a member of hip hop group Migos. He rapped alongside Quavo and Offset. Takeoff died at 28 years.

Rapper Takeoff died in a fatal shooting in Houston at about 02:30 am local time. By the time of his death, he and Migos group member Quavo are said to have been playing dice, TMZ reported.

The youthful rapper breathed his last at the scene of crime while other two people that were shot were rushed to hospital in critical condition. It has been reported that Takeoff’s group member Quavo did not sustain any serious injuries in the shooting.

Below is the TMZ report detailing what sources told the entertainment publication:

Law enforcement sources, and multiple witnesses, tell us the fatal incident went down shortly after 2:30 AM … that’s when cops got the call for a man shot at a bowling alley called 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston.

We’re told Takeoff and Quavo were there playing dice when an altercation broke out and that’s when someone opened fire, shooting Takeoff … either in the head or near to his head. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

TMZ Hip Hop has obtained footage from the scene, and you can see Quavo — in an orange shirt — and others gathered around Takeoff. At first they tried to move him, but then put him back down, and Quavo yelled for someone to get help.

Police tell us 2 other people were shot and were taken to the hospital in private vehicles. It’s unclear what their conditions are. Quavo was not injured.

Just a couple of hours before the shooting, Takeoff posted a selfie from the bowling alley. Quavo had posted video earlier in the night, driving around Houston with Jas Prince, who was celebrating his birthday.
