US Rapper Takeoff, a member of hip hop group Migos shot dead in Houston, Texas over a dice game

Migos rapper Takeoff has been shot dead ‘over a game of dice in front of his uncle and bandmate Quavo outside of a bowling alley in Texas.

Takeoff, real name Kirshnik Khari Ball, had joined his uncle Quavo for a game of dice before the shooting, witnesses and law enforcement sources told TMZ.

The 28-year-old, who is a member of the hip-hop trio, was shot as a group gathered outside of the 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston.

Houston Police confirmed that one person was found dead at the scene at 1200 Polk, but would not confirm the identity of the deceased.

Images from the scene reportedly show the rapper lying dead in a puddle of blood after being ‘shot in the head’ during the row.

The shooting came hours after he posted an Instagram story of him wearing the same outfit.

Two other victims were also rushed to hospital in a private vehicle, and it is unclear what their conditions are.

Horrifying footage from the scene show Takeoff lying on the floor, while Quavo rushes to his side.

A group started to gather around the injured rapper and tried to move him, but quickly lowered him to the ground as Quavo screamed for help.

Migos was founded by Takeoff in 2008 with his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset – who is married to Cardi B.

Offset, who was not in Houston with his father and cousin, was celebrating Halloween with Cardi B and their children.
