Takeoff – the famous rapper in the group Migos – was shot dead while attending a party with his colleague Quavo.
According to CNN, Takeoff attended a party at the 810 Billiards & Bowling area in Houston on November 1. When he went out, he and his group of friends were shot five times in a row by a strange man and died at the scene. Two other people – a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman – were injured and taken to the hospital.
Rapper Quavo stood near Takeoff but was uninjured. A witness said the attack took place just after the party was over. About 40 people gathered outside the bowling alley to witness the incident, most of them leaving after the shooting. Hours before their death, Takeoff and Quavo shared many happy videos of preparing for the party.
