In The Latest News Surrounding The Fatal Shooting Of Takeoff

Houston Police Chief, Troy Finner, announced on Monday (Nov. 21) that he believes at least two people discharged their weapons killing the Migos rapper and wounding two others with non-life-threatening injuries.

While fans have speculated that the attentive level of the case seems to be at a standstill with no clarity or a suspect in detainment, Finner says otherwise,

“I feel good where we’re progressing. You remember on that day, I met with his mother. I talked with that lady personally, made a promise and there’s a lot being said. We want all investigations on murders when people are being killed to move. But the main thing is we get it right,” per Click2Houston.

He continued:

“I do not want to send family members on a roller coaster ride and then we have to come back and say, ‘woah that wasn’t the person.’ I want everyone to be patient and just understand there will be some justice here in Houston, Texas.”

Leads In The Ongoing Case

Finner explained he won’t be disclosing information to the public that can’t stand on the shoulders of an arrest. However, he feels confident in the police department’s efforts,

“I don’t want to discuss any details on it, but I can tell you that we will find this person and we will identify the person or persons responsible for Takeoff’s death. I don’t like talking too much while investigations are going on. I’m a person that says, ‘you know what, let people talk.’ But my talking is when we get that person and we put them in jail.”

Finner echoed the sentiments of the many people who publicly spoke out about Takeoff’s character,

“[Takeoff] was a good guy. And he died in our city. People can say whatever they want to, it’s a good city but you know what, we as a city need to find out and do what we can to make sure we identify and locate [those individuals] or that individual.” 

Born Kirsnick Khari Ball, Takeoff was recently celebrated (Nov. 11) in Atlanta during a homegoing at the State Farm Arena building. He was only 31 when he was tragically struck in the head and torso while at a private event in a Houston bowling alley, according to the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Quavo, Takeoff’s uncle and group mate, just released a joint album in October called Built for Infinity Links.
