Video clip shows last moments of Takeoff
Horrifying footage shows the desperate last moments that Migos rapper Quavo desperately tried to help his nephew Takeoff after he was shot in the ‘head or neck’ in a dispute over ‘a game of dice’.
The 28-year-old, 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.
Friends and fans have slammed the ‘senseless violence’ of the killing, with tributes to the rapper pouring in. 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. It has been noted that the shooting came hours after his social media post. Two other victims were also rushed to hospital in a private vehicle, and it is unclear what their conditions are.
Takeoff had joined his uncle Quavo for a game of dice before the shooting, witnesses and law enforcement sources told TMZ.
Footage from the scene show Takeoff lying on the floor, while Quavo rushes to his side. A group started to gather around the injured rapper and tried to move him, but quickly lowered him to the ground as Quavo screamed for help. Video of the incident shows several women shouting to ‘get inside’, while another man can be heard saying ‘I’m scared for you bro’.
