Migos Member Takeoff Shot and Killed at Bowling Alley in Houston, Texas – See Photos, Watch Video
28-year-old Takeoff, the youngest member of the trio Migos, was fatally shot hours ago while at a Bowling Alley in Houston, Texas. Birth name Kirshnik Khari Ball, he was the cousin of rapper Offset and nephew of rapper Quavo.
As confirmed by TMZ Hip Hop from police and eyewitnesses that were on the scene, the incident took place just shortly after 2:30 am this morning at the bowling alley named 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston in the United States.
Reportedly, Quavo and Takeoff were in the middle of a dice game when an altercation of unknown causes broke out and someone pulled out a gun and started shooting. Takeoff was hit. It is unclear if he was shot in the head or close to his head. He was declared dead at the scene.
Although Quavo was not hurt, two other individuals were also shot during the incident. They were taken to a nearby hospital where they are undergoing treatment, but their overall condition is unknown.
Before everything went south, Quavo had uploaded a video of them on a joyride with Jas Prince (it was his birthday) and Takeoff posted a picture of himself lighting up while at the bowling alley.

Footage from the scene recorded Quavo (dressed in an orange or red shirt) and multiple other people surrounding Takeoff who was on the floor. After trying to initially move him, they stopped and instead Quavo started yelling for someone to get help, a few women who were on the scene were trying to get someone by the name of Maddie to leave because they were scared and others were also heard saying, “come on, we gotta go.”
