Police still want to speak with more witnesses at the scene of shooting. During a press conference, police Sgt. Michael Burrow said, “We’ve boiled it down to over 30 people that were standing outside. Literally, every single one of those people left the scene without giving a statement to police.”

He continued, “We found a few of them that night, we’ve found others since then, but it’s important that those people come forward.”

Born Kirsnick Khari Ball, Takeoff was fatally shot outside 810 Bowling Alley in Houston on Nov. 1. He was only 28. Houston Police discovered that the Atlanta rapper was with his uncle and fellow Migos member, Quavo, for a private party and that the shooting happened after a dice game in which both the Migos members were playing at around 2:30 a.m.

During the press conference Sgt. Burrow said Takeoff was an “innocent bystander” while an argument was taking place, which unfortunately led to his death.
