The trio Migos has recently lost a member, Takeoff who was shot and killed in Houston TX on Tuesday, November 1st. He was only 28 years old.
Police had received a call of a shooting in progress right around 2:30 am Houston Police Department Chief Troy Finner said at a news conference Tuesday. When officers approached the scene at 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston where there had been a private party going on, they found a dead man on the scene.
Two other people were also injured in the shootout, a 23-year-old man and 24-year-old woman -- and took themselves to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, said Sgt. Michael Arrington with the police department's homicide division.
The employees who were working at the time told police an argument took place after the party ended when a large group of people gathered at the front door area outside of the building, which led to the shooting. At least 40 people were at the scene at the time of the shooting, Finner said.
"A lot of people that were there fled the scene and did not stick around to give a statement," Arrington said.
Finner identified the deceased man as Takeoff of the rap group Migos.
"I got many calls from Houston and outside of Houston, and everyone spoke of what a great young man he is, how peaceful he is, what a great artist (he is)," Finner said, later adding that Takeoff was very well respected and nonviolent.
"I would not expect him to be involved ... We have no reason to believe that he was involved in anything criminal at the time," Finner said.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said they have met with Takeoff's mother.
"It doesn't matter how famous you are. You may not be famous at all," Turner said. "Anybody who loses his or her life is a life lost, and there are family members and friends who are grieving as a result."
Since this occurred, not just celebrities but fans too have been devastated and mourning his death.
His funeral is set for Friday, November 11th at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta. The services will begin at 1:00 p.m. and will be officiated by Rev. Jesse Curney, III of New Mercies Christian Church.
