A disagreement over a dice game started a shooting that killed the Grammy-nominated hitmaker, whose real name was Kirshnik Khari Ball, during a private party at 810 Billiards & Bowling in downtown Houston, according to TMZ. He was 28 years old.
The rapper’s passing was verified to the Associated Press by a rep who was not authorized to speak in public. After some witnesses reported hearing shooting from the balcony, Houston Police and fire personnel arrived on the area at around 2:40 in the morning.
Police Houston Chronicle was informed by Lt. Ronnie Wilkins said: “A lot of folks were there,”
“They were in front of the bar. The bar was closed at the time, but people were congregating out on the balcony area. Everybody fled.”
Who was Rapper Takeoff?
Kirshnik Khari Ball, better known as Takeoff, was an American rapper. He was best known for being a member of the hip hop trio Migos with his uncle Quavo and first cousin once removed Offset.

How Did Rapper Takeoff Die?
According to video obtained by TMZ, Takeoff was lying on the ground and was surrounded by fellow Migos member Quavo, 31, and other people. According to the video, the gang attempted to raise his body before setting him down again and shouting for assistance.
According to authorities, the individual was declared deceased at the spot. Unknown conditions were used to transport two more victims in private automobiles to local hospitals.
The victims’ identities were not made public by the police, although they did say that the deceased was a male in his late 20s. The Houston Chronicle was informed by Arrington: “We won’t release any information on him until we’re able to get more information on him either from the medical examiner’s office once they positively identify him from the autopsy, or friends and family come forward and give us information on who he is,”
According to TMZ, Quavo, who is also Takeoff’s uncle, was unharmed. Quavo and Takeoff were present, according to the police, but they would not comment on whether they were involved in the shooting.
