The Houston Police Department confirmed two arrests in connection with the murder on November 1. Takeoff, who was born Kirsnick Khari Ball, was the youngest member of the Grammy-nominated rap group Migos, which also included his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset.

A disagreement broke out as about 40 people were leaving a private party at the bowling alley about 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 1, and the 28-year-old musician was one of three people police claim were shot outside. According to police, at least two people opened fire during the shooting. Thus, inflicting non-life-threatening wounds on a male and a woman.

According to investigators, people at the location claim that a brawl started before the shooting. The 33-year-old Patrick Xavier Clark was detained by police on a murder accusation on Friday. He was arrested just over a month after Takeoff was shot to death after a private party at a Houston nightclub.

Clark was arrested by police on the east side of Houston on Thursday, December 1. According to the report, a motion to deny bail for Mr. Clark alleged that he had just booked flights to Mexico and applied for an expedited US passport. Another man named, Cameron Joshua was also detained by the police.

“…He was about business, not violence.”

Cameron Joshua- second suspect arrested:

According to to the report, Mr. Joshua’s attorney Christopher Downey claimed that prosecutors would have charged Mr. Joshua differently if they had evidence connecting his client to the murder.

Mr Joshua was already out on bond for possession of a fake ID. He also connected in previous charges in Harris County, including burglary of a motor vehicle and tampering with a government record, says the media.
