Update: Takeoff’s Alleged Killer Indicted On Murder Charge

Update: (May 25, 2023): New details have surfaced in the ongoing investigation of Takeoff’s death.

According to reports, Patrick Xavier Clark — the man accused of murdering the rapper in November — was officially indicted today (May 25) by a Harris County grand jury.

You may recall that in December, Houston PD arrested Clark for allegedly firing fatal shots at the “Vacation” rapper. However, earlier this year, Clark was released and ordered to house arrest after posting a $1 million bond.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates. 


Original story: (Jan. 5, 2023): Patrick Clark, the man who’s suspected to be responsible for the tragic murder of Migos rapper Takeoff, has been released from jail.

According to reports, on Wednesday (Jan. 4), 33-year-old Patrick Clark posted a $1 million bond, and he’s been given a house-arrest mandate until his next court appearance.

As you may know, in November 2022, Migos rapper Takeoff was shot and killed outside of a bowling alley in Houston, Texas. The horrifying occurrence reportedly took place after a dice game went left. Along with the late lyricist, was his family member/groupmate Quavo.

In addition to Patrick Clark’s home restriction, he’s set to undergo drug testing and is currently prohibited from firearm possession, narcotic use, and alcohol consumption.

As previously reported, Clark’s temporary freedom comes only days after a Houston judge denied his recent attempt to have the million-dollar fee lowered to an “affordable amount.”

Originally ranged at $2 million, $1 million was the previously-reduced price agreed upon by Judge Josh Hill, but Clark’s legal team argued that their client could not meet that financial condition either. Prosecutors cited concerns about Clark possibly acting as a flight risk.

At the time, Judge Hill noted his belief that Clark had the money needed to be released on a $1 million bond. For that reason, he denied the plea to reduce the bond from $1 million to $300,000.

When speaking of the unfavorable decision, prior to Clark’s latest bond posting, his attorney, Letitia Quinones, said:

“We’re very surprised by [the denied request]. A couple of weeks ago, the judge laid out some conditions and requirements he wanted the defense to meet. We believe we’ve satisfied each one of those requirements.”

Patrick Clark will return before the judge in March.
