Bowling alley shooting in Houston

Here's what we currently know: Last night, Takeoff and Quavo were at a bowling alley together. Just hours before, Takeoff published a photo on Instagram showing him right in front of the bar. This was the 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston. The Migos rappers were playing dice when a row erupted for reasons not yet known.

Takeoff is shot on the ground

At around 2:30 a.m. local time, shots were fired, killing Takeoff. Two other people were injured, but Quavo is not among them. TMZ published excerpts from a video they have. It shows Quavo kneeling in front of Takeoff in an orange t-shirt and frantically trying to save him.

He is said to have first tried to get his crewmates up. When that didn't work, he called for help. In the photos, Takeoff lies lifeless in his own pool of blood on the floor. The blurred images also show that the rapper was probably not hit, or not only in the upper body, but also in the head. It is now clear that the Migos member did not survive the incident...
