    Takeoff, who is a member of the hip hop trio, was shot at a ‘private party’ as a group gathered outside of the 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston, in Texas, at 2.30am.

    Quavo, bandmate and uncle of Takeoff, looked distraught as he knelt over his nephew moments after the shooting as he can be heard screaming for help. 

    Houston Police confirmed that one person was found dead at the scene at 1200 Polk, but would not confirm the identity of the deceased. 

    Officers confirmed that there were 40 to 50 people at the location, when they discovered a man with a gunshot wound to the head or neck. 

    Security guards who were in the area heard the shooting but did not see who did it according to police. 

    Dispatchers reportedly heard five shots fired, according to TMZ, with witnesses telling officers that they heard multiple gunshots and screaming. 

    Images from the scene reportedly show the rapper lying dead in a puddle of blood after being ‘shot in the head’ during the row.

    The shooting came hours after he posted an Instagram story of him wearing the same outfit, along with a Playboi Carti song called ‘Stop Breathing’.

    Two other victims were also rushed to hospital in a private vehicle, and it is unclear what their conditions are.

    Migos was founded by Takeoff in 2008 with his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset – who is married to Cardi B.

Especially reckless folk who can’t simply disagree with people-they have to resort to this! My deepest condolences to the whole family of Takeoff. Gone at 28.’

    Earlier this month, Takeoff and Quavo joined forces in their debut as a duo with their album ‘Only Built for Infinity Links.

    While there have been whisperings of the Atlanta rap trio Migos splitting up for good, there has been no official announcement of their disbandment.

    Instead, Takeoff and Quavo released ‘Only Built for Infinity Links,’ without third member Offset.

    Most recently, Quavo and Takeoff had released a project as the duo, ‘Unc & Phew’ and released their latest music video, ‘Messy,’ on Monday – hours before the killing.

    While all three artists have previously released albums as solo artists during their time together, some fans are convinced that there is friction among the hitmakers.

    The group’s 2018 Migos album Culture II debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 albums chart.

    This marked their second US number-one album following Culture, which featured their smash hit Bad And Boujee.

    The family connection is strong within Migos, as Quavo and Offset are cousins, while Takeoff is Quavo’s nephew.

    The group released their first mixtape, Juug season, in 2011, and a second one called No Label in 2012.

    In 2013, Migos had their first hit, Versace. While the single peaked at number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, it gained a new lease on life when Drake remixed the song and added a verse of his own, even going so far as performing it at the iHeartRadio Music Festival that year.

    In June of that year, Migos released their Y.R.N mixtape, which featured Versace. The following year, the group released a sequel to their No Label mixtape called No Label II.

    The mixtape was a huge hit and has been downloaded nearly one million times and certified double platinum by DatPiff.

    The group, which has earned two Grammy nominations, released its first album, Yung Rich Nation in June 2015, which peaked at Number 3 on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums chart.
