The entertainment world is mourning the shocking death of Migos member Takeoff.
As previously reported, the rapper from Lawrenceville, Georgia was fatally shot early Tuesday morning in Houston, Texas. He was 28.
Houston ABC News affiliate KTRK reported that police were called to 810 Billiards & Bowling at about 2:30 a.m. local time for reports of a shooting. According to TMZ, Takeoff and fellow Migos member Quavo were playing a game of dice when an altercation broke out and someone opened fire, shooting Takeoff.
Takeoff, born Kirshnik Khari Ball, formed Migos with Quavo, his uncle, and Offset, his cousin, in 2008. Takeoff and Quavo released an album as a duo, Only Built for Infinity Links, last month and dropped their Halloween-themed “Messy” video on Monday.
Gucci Mane collaborated with the duo on the second single from their new album, “Us vs. Them.” He shared a photo of Takeoff on Instagram and commented, “This broke my heart. Rest in peace.”
