Rapper Takeoff of group Migos at deadly shooting in Houston, police say!!

Rapper Kirshnik Khari Ball, known as Takeoff, was at the scene of a shooting early Tuesday that left at least one dead and two others injured in Houston, police said.

Houston police said they would not be identifying the person killed in the shooting “until his family is notified & ID verified by Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.”

Police said the victim was a Black male in his 20s. The shooting took place during a private party at a bowling alley, at 2:40 a.m., local news outlet Click2Houston reported.

A reporter for Fox 26 in Houston shared a clip of a news conference, with a spokesperson confirming police “were informed” that members of the hip-hop trio Migos — Takeoff, 28, and Quavo, who is Takeoff’s uncle — were at the scene. It is not known whether Offset, the third member of the group, was at the private gathering.

BREAKING: Houston PD is investigating a homicide at GreenStreet downtown. They will not ID the victim but confirm members of the rap group Migos, specifically Quavo and Takeoff were here.

2 other people were shot and are being treated at a hospital.

The police department tweeted that its officers responded to a shooting in downtown Houston and that one victim was found dead. It later added that two other victims were “taken in private vehicles to hospitals.”

An agent and publicist representing Migos could not immediately be reached for comment early Tuesday.

Migos will not be measured by their rhymes. They’ll be measured by their consonants.

The three Atlanta rappers rose to fame the summer of 2013 with their single “Versace.” Their song “Bad and Boujee” featuring rapper Lil Uzi Vert climbed to the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in 2017, making it the group’s first No. 1 single.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
