Takeoff Ball, born Kirsnick Khari Ball, was the youngest member of the Grammy-nominated Atlanta neighborhood rap group Migos, which also included his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset.

Police said the shooting of the 28-year-old musician occurred at 2:30 a.m. when a fight broke out as more than 30 people were leaving a private party at a downtown bowling alley. At least two people, according to the police, opened fire, resulting in non-fatal injuries to a man and a woman.

Police During a press conference on Friday, Sergeant Michael Burrow said that the shooting began after two people got into an argument over a “lucrative” game of dice, but that Takeoff was not involved and was “an innocent witness.” According to Finner, the authorities have no idea if Clark was invited or if he knew Takeoff.

According to Burrow, nobody stayed to talk to the police and everyone departed the site. Burrow claims that the authorities have tracked down some of the missing individuals and are using ballistics, surveillance footage, and interviews to piece together what happened. He noted that detectives are still canvassing the area in search of any witnesses.

He warned that “we will be looking to find you.” In other words, “Come find us; it’ll be simpler that way.”

On Wednesday, law enforcement revealed that they had apprehended Cameron Joshua in connection with the incident. Although Joshua, then 22 years old, was charged with illegally possessing a gun at the moment Takeoff was shot, prosecutors maintain that they do not believe Joshua fired the weapon.

As Joshua’s lawyer, Christopher Downey, told the press, his client has not seen any evidence linking him to Takeoff’s murder.

According to Burrow, Clark’s gunshots are what finally put an end to the rapper’s career.

On Friday, prosecutors requested that Clark’s bond be set at $1 million, noting that he poses a flight risk. Clark, after the shooting at Takeoff, reportedly registered for a passport renewal with an “imminent” departure to Mexico as the reason. According to reports, he was apprehended on the day he acquired the passport while in possession of a “substantial sum” of cash.

At a funeral service held last month in Atlanta, fans and other performers honored Takeoff’s musical legacy.

Quality Control, Takeoff’s record label, released a statement on Instagram lamenting his death and attributing it to “senseless violence.”

Migos’ “Versace” was a huge success in 2013, marking the group’s debut. Even without Takeoff on their multi-week No. 1 single “Bad and Boujee” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, they have four Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. The first two albums of their “Culture” trilogy, both released in the 1990s, reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Takeoff never put out an album under his own name, but in the months leading up to his untimely demise, he collaborated with Quavo on “Only Built for Infinity Links.” In an interview for the “Drink Champs” podcast, Takeoff said, “It’s time to give me my flowers” in reference to the growing acclaim for his poetic skills following the release of the collaborative album.

On the same day that news of Clark’s arrest broke, Friday, Metro Boomin’s “Heroes and Villains” album was published, and it included Takeoff and A$AP Rocky on the track “Feel The Fiyaaaah.”

During his performance, he crooned, “Right now in the streets.”
