A suspect has been arrested and charged with murder in the fatal shooting of Migos rapper Takeoff, Houston police said Friday.
Patrick Xavier Clark, 33, was arrested Thursday evening in Houston and “charged with the murder of Takeoff,” Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said during a press briefing.
Takeoff, born Kirshnik Khari Ball, was shot and killed outside the 810 Billiards & Bowling in downtown Houston around 2:30 a.m. on November 1 following a private event, police said. He was 28.
A 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman also suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting, police said.
Police said at the time that an argument between some of the party guests “led to multiple unknown males firing pistols at each other.” There was no indication the rapper was involved in the dispute, police said.
Police have urged the public to come forward with tips in the days and weeks since.
Amid the investigation into the shooting, a 22-year-old man was recently charged with two counts of felon in possession of a weapon for allegedly having a gun at the time Takeoff was fatally shot, ABC Houston station KTRK reported.
