“Migos” Rapper Takeoff Dies at 28

The youngest member of the rap trio was shot dead outside a downtown Houston bowling alley early Tuesday morning, a rep confirmed.

Migos rapper Takeoff was killed in an early-morning shooting in Houston, Texas, multiple outlets report.

The 28-year-old, whose real name was Kirshnik Khari Ball, was shot dead Tuesday outside a downtown bowling alley, the Associated Press confirms through a representative for Migos who was not authorized to speak publicly.

A Houston Police Department spokesperson tells PEOPLE they are waiting for the medical examiner’s office to identify the victim and notify the family, which has not happened yet, before confirming themselves.

Takeoff was at a private party with fellow Migos rapper, when an altercation broke out at 810 Billiards & Bowling at approximately 2:30 a.m. Quavo, 31, was not injured in the incident.

Officers with the Houston Police Department arrived at the scene where they found one person who was identified as a Black man in his 20s suffering a gunshot wound to the head or neck, according to Click2Houston.com.

Lt. Christina Salazar told the station that 40 to 50 people were at the party when the shooting took place. No arrests have been announced yet.

Takeoff and his uncle, Quavo, were part of the rap trio that also included his cousin, Offset, 30. The group, from Lawrenceville, Georgia, had released music for nearly 15 years.

But new releases and promotional materials indicated the two were moving forward without Offset. Though each member had released solo projects in the past, Takeoff and Quavo continued to work together, occasionally calling themselves “Unc and Phew.”

They released the song “Us vs. Them” with Gucci Mane, their second single since May that did not feature Offset. Neither “Us vs. Them” nor the previous single, “Hotel Lobby,” were released under the Migos name; they were instead credited simply to Quavo and Takeoff.

And on Oct. 7, Quavo and Takeoff dropped their collaborative album, Only Built for Infinity Links, featuring their latest hit, “Messy.” The pair had released the music video for the song on Monday.
