Migos Rapper Takeoff was fatally shot on November 1 at a Houston bowling alley.
The 28-year-old was shot by a gunshot that was meant for another man, according to the police, as he attempted to break up a fight between two other guys.
Even though there were more than 30 witnesses to the shooting, Takeoff’s loved ones were impatient as weeks passed without any arrests.
In light of rumors that authorities have apprehended the individual they believe to be responsible for Takeoff’s murder, the family, which includes his cousin and uncle who performed with him in the group Migos, can hopefully breathe a bit easier today.
According to a new report from TMZ, 33-year-old Patrick Xavier Clark was apprehended by Houston police and charged with the murder of Takeoff.
The site reports that prosecutors have asked that Clark’s bail be set to $1 million.
The DA has also requested that the judge issue an order prohibiting Clark from talking with various individuals involved in the case, including Takeoff’s family, J. Prince Jr. and his family, as well as Shakur Stevenson and anyone from Shakur’s “place of employment.”
While certain details are being kept under wraps due to the ongoing investigation, a clearer picture of Takeoff’s final moments has emerged over the past month.
Witnesses and video indicate that Takeoff and uncle Quavo were partying at the bowling alley when Quavo became involved in some sort of confrontation.
Takeoff attempted to intercede on his uncle’s behalf and was shot in the head and chest by an assailant dressed in all black.
In addition to their work in Migos, Takeoff and Quavo also made up the hip-hop duo Unc and Phew.
Migos also included Takeoff and Quavo’s cousin Offset who is married to rapper Cardi B.
In a series of candid social media posts, Cardi has revealed that she and her husband have been overwhelmed by feelings of hopelessness in the wake of Takeoff’s murder.
“It’s so hard to tell you Ima miss you because you were always with me and we did everything together,” Offset wrote on Instagram following Takeoff’s funeral.
“Since we were kids you been by my side, lookin’ up at me, the eyes waiting on me to make the next move.. then you followed up right behind me,” he continued.
“The pain you have left me with is unbearable.”
“Nothing ever bothered to Take and he didn’t bother anybody,” Quavo wrote, calling his nephew “by far the funniest person in [the] room.”
While nothing can undo the tragedy of Takeoff’s passing, the news that justice may soon be done will hopefully provide some solace to the rapper’s grieving loved one.
