It’s been three weeks since Takeoff lost his life to senseless gun violence and Houston police say they are confident they’ll find the person(s) responsible.
The Migos rapper, whose real name is Kirsnick Khari Ball, was fatally shot on November 1 at 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston shortly after 2:30 a.m., where he was attending a private party.
No suspects have been identified and no arrests have been made in the case.
Houston Police Chief Troy Finner says they are “confident” that they will find the person or persons who are responsible for taking the life of the beloved rapper.
Tips are coming, but the investigation is active and I don’t want to discuss any details on it.
But, I can tell you we will find this person and we will identify the person or persons responsible for Takeoff’s death.
There has been a lot of street gossip surrounding the shooting from who actually pulled the trigger to rumors claiming the alleged shooter was killed as a result of street justice.
There are also concerns that the case has gone “cold” because those who were there aren’t speaking up or talking to the police.
While speaking to KPRC, Chief Finner slightly addressed street gossip by simply saying, “Let them talk.”
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.
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.
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.
Watch a portion of the statement below.
Takeoff was laid to rest on November 11 after thousands gathered at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta for his celebration of life.
Both Quavo and Offset have taken to social media to grieve, honor, and pay tribute to Take.
My continued prayers to all who knew and loved Takeoff.
