Takeoff, a member of rap group Migos alongside Quavo and Offset, was killed during an early-morning shooting outside a Houston bowling alley on Tuesday, according to reports. He was 28.

Police and emergency officials with the Houston Fire Department responded to 810 Billiards & Bowling around 2:30 a.m., law enforcement sources told TMZ. When they arrived on the scene, they discovered Takeoff, whose real name is Kirshnik Khari Ball, suffering a gunshot wound to either the head or neck. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

Witnesses told TMZ that Quavo and Takeoff were playing dice at the Houston hotspot when an altercation broke out that quickly escalated to violence. Another two people were reportedly shot and hospitalized.

Quavo was not wounded in the gunfire.
