Takeoff: Quavo In Heated Discussion Prior To Deadly Shooting Surfaces
Quavo can be seen and heard shouting with someone outside the Houston bowling alley where his nephew and fellow Migos member was killed in the early hours of Tuesday in the video acquired by TMZ (November 1).
The tense exchange, which appeared to be focused on basketball, can be seen taking place just a few feet away from Takeoff. “Man, I don’t care about no basketball, bruh,” can be heard Quavo stating, who was reportedly rolling dice at the time. Bruh, don’t act that way.
Soon after, there is a physical altercation, which is quickly followed by gunfire. More than 10 bullets were fired, and according to TMZ, many weapons may have been used.
Takeoff was hit by at least one of the gunshots “either in the head or near his head.” He was declared dead at the scene when the police arrived. Quavo managed to leave the shooting unscathed, but two further victims were brought to local hospitals.
Standing next to Takeoff at the moment of the shooting was boxing champion Shakur Stevenson, who escaped unharmed. He posted “R.I.P. Takeoff” to Twitter on Tuesday.
Takeoff is no more.

Takeoff’s death was the result of “a stray bullet,” according to Kevin “Coach K” Lee, co-founder of Quality Control Music, the record label for Migos, in a statement about it.
“It is with broken hearts and deep sadness that we mourn the loss of our beloved brother Kirsnick Khari Ball, known to the world as Takeoff,” the message read. “Senseless violence and a stray bullet has taken another life from this world and we are devastated. Please respect his family and friends as we all continue to process this monumental loss.”
