Takeoff of the hit rap group Migos was reportedly shot and killed in Houston in the early morning hours on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022, the media has reported.

TMZ acquired photos showing a man who has been identified as Takeoff lying in a pool of his own blood as Quavo kneeled over him. There are videos circulating on social media where Quavo can be heard frantically calling for someone to go for help.

Takeoff, who was born Kirshnik Khari Ball in Atlanta, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Quavo was not injured in the melee.

Two hours before the eruption of gunfire, both Takeoff and Quavo had posted a selfie and video, respectively, from the bowling alley in downtown Houston.
