Takeoff, a rapper from the group Migos, was shot and killed outside a private party in Houston, according to authorities.

One-third of the platinum-selling rap trio Migos, Takeoff, was shot and died early on Tuesday in Houston, Texas, according to the police. He was 28.

Around 2:34 a.m., police were alerted of a gunshot that was taking place. Troy Finner, the chief of the Houston Police Department, said as much at a press conference on Tuesday. When police got to the 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston, where a private party was taking place, they discovered a deceased male on the premises.

A 23-year-old male and a 24-year-old woman were also hurt in the shooting and went to the hospital on their own, according to Sgt. Michael Arrington of the police department’s murder branch. Their wounds weren’t life-threatening.

After the party finished, a sizable crowd gathered outside the building’s front entrance, where employees said a dispute broke out and resulted in the shooting. At the time of the incident, at least 40 persons were there, according to Finner.

According to Arrington, “a number of folks who were present left the area and didn’t remain around to provide a statement.”

The dead guy was recognised by Finner as Kirshnik Khari Ball, better known by his stage name Takeoff of the rap trio Migos.

In subsequent comments, Finner stated Takeoff was well-respected and nonviolent. She said, “I had many calls from Houston and outside of Houston, and everyone talked of what a fantastic young guy he is, how calm he is, what a brilliant artist (he is).

We have no reason to think that he was engaged in any illegal activity at the time, so I wouldn’t anticipate him to be involved, said Finner.

Mayor of Houston Sylvester Turner said that they had spoken with Takeoff’s mother.

“It makes no difference how well-known you are. You could not even be well-known,” Turner said. “Everyone who passes away is a life gone, and there are friends and family members who are mourning as a consequence.
