Takeoff’s Murder Investigation Making Progress, According To Houston Police: I Feel Good Where We’re Progressing

When it comes to the investigation of the fatal shooting of Takeoff, Houston police wants to make sure they “get it right.”

On Monday morning (Nov. 21) Houston Police Chief Troy Finner addressed fans around the country who believe that the investigation of Takeoff’s death has gone cold. As previously reported, Takeoff, one-third of the Migos rap group, was shot in the head and torso outside of a bowling alley in Houston on Tuesday (Nov. 1). The 28-year-old, born Kirsnick Khari Ball, was pronounced dead at the scene. Prior to the shooting a video surfaced of Quavo, Takeoff’s uncle and Migos group member, in a heated argument which seemingly started over a basketball debate.

According to the Houston Police Department, at least two people discharged firearms, leaving two others injured without non-life-threatening wounds. Chief Finner, the top cop at HPD, said although the investigation appears to be taking forever, it’s going in the right direction. He shared:

“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.

He added:

“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.”


Finner said tips are coming in and investigators are following up on all leads. He continued:

“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.”

He mentioned sentiments that everyone who knew and loved Takeoff stated he was a loving and lovable soul whose death could’ve been avoided. Finner said:

“That 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 individual or that individual.”
