A tragic incident struck Houston when US rapper Takeoff was killed, Kirshnik Khari Ball was the real name of the musician and he was best known for being a member of the hip-hop trio Migos including his uncle and a first cousin.
Soon after the news emerged in the music industry about Takeoff’s death, big names like Gucci Mane, Kid Cudi, Khalid and Dave, etc., posted tributes on their individual social media handles over the rapper’s tragic death, while Rick Ross called him a "young legend".
Migos emerged as one of those bands who was one of the most influential groups of their generation, pioneering a style of rapping in choppy, staccato triplets known as the "Migos flow".
The band, who split earlier this year, scored several international hits including Bad and Boujee, Versace and Walk It Talk It.
According to eyewitnesses and sources, it was at about 02:30 local time (07:30 GMT) in Houston, Texas when the shooting took place on a balcony outside the 810 Billiards bowling alley.
At this time Takeoff had reportedly been playing dice with his uncle and bandmate, Quavo when he got shot to death.
Officials and police authorities revealed in a public statement that around 40 to 50 guests were gathered at a private party when someone opened fire on the US rapper Takeoff and shot him straight away to death.
The police authorities and officials also added that at the time of their arrival, a large crowd was gathered around a man with a gunshot wound to the head or neck and it was not much late when the rapper Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to officials and police authorities, two other people also got injured during the open fire on the US rapper Takeoff while he was peacefully playing dice with his uncle, and they were driven to the nearest hospital in private vehicles so they can get appropriate treatment without any delay that can lead to fatal consequences.
