The 28-year-old was shot following an altercation outside 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston when gunfire rang off and fatally struck the Migos rapper while leaving two others hospitalized.
Takeoff can be seen standing just a few feet away from the tense exchange, which seemingly centered around basketball. Quavo, who was reportedly playing dice at the time, can be heard saying: “Man, I don’t care about no basketball, bruh … Don’t play like that, bruh.”
Moments later, a physical altercation breaks out, followed by gunfire. Over 10 shots were fired, with TMZ speculating they came from more than one weapon.
According to TMZ, Takeoff (real name Kirsnick Ball) was shot multiple times and was ruled dead upon medical professionals’ arrival to the scene. The Harris County Medical Examiner listed his cause of death as “penetrating gunshot wounds of head and torso into arm.”
Offset is yet to publicly speak out about the loss of his Migos running mate, however, he did make a small tribute by switching his Instagram profile picture to a photo of the late Takeoff.
