Fans around the world are total reeling following news that rapper, Takeoff, of the well known rap group, Migos, was shot dead in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. A representative for the musician, real name Kirshnik Khari Ball, confirmed the news to the Associated Press.

The 28-year-old was reportedly shot during an altercation over a dice game, at a bowling alley in Houston. Video footage captured during the heat of the moment, showed fellow artist and relative of the victim Quavo, wailing painfully beside Takeoff.

Online, many have expressed sadness over the incident, some calling for the frequency of the music and lifestyle of the entertainment industry, to be curtailed. Some noted that Takeoff was known to be the most humble and quiet of the three rappers.

Migos, considered one of the most influential groups of their generation, having pioneered the choppy, staccato triplets known as the “Migos flow,” split earlier this year. Songs delivered by the trio included, ‘Bad and Boujee’, ‘Versace’ and ‘Walk It Talk It.’

Police said 40 to 50 guests had been at a private party when someone opened fire. Security guards in the area heard the shots but did not see who fired the gun. When they arrived, officers said they found a large crowd and a man in his twenties with a gunshot wound to the head or neck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Takeoff was identified as the victim by media outlets including TMZ, Variety and the Hollywood Reporter. Police said they would not officially confirm an identity until the victim’s family had been notified. Police said two other injured victims were driven to hospital in private vehicles.
