Quavo’s Assistant, Joshua ‘Wash’ Washington, Among Those Injured During Shooting That Took Takeoff’s Life
More details have recently surfaced surrounding the tragic shooting of Takeoff.
As previously reported, on Tuesday (Nov. 1), Takeoff, born Kirshnik Ball, was fatally shot in Houston, Texas. According to reports, Police received a call of a shooting in progress around 2:34 a.m. local time. Officers arrived at a bowling alley and found a dead man, Takeoff, at the scene.
Initial reports revealed that two other people – a 23-year-old man and 24-year-old woman – were also injured in the shooting. However, the identities of the other victims weren’t released at the time.
New reports claim that the 23-year-old man who was shot is Quavo’s assistant Joshua “Wash” Washington. He was rushed to the hospital following the incident and was allegedly treated for injuries cops have described as “non-life threatening.”
The shooter of the attack has yet to be publicly named, but the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office says Takeoff was struck in both the head and torso. Allegedly, Quavo and a bystander attempted to resuscitate Takeoff after he was shot. Unfortunately, when authorities arrived the Georgia native was pronounced dead on the scene.
Our prayers continue to be with the loved ones of Takeoff during this difficult time.
