Patrick Xavier Clark, a 33-year-old man, has been arrested in Houston, TX, for the murder of Migos' Takeoff. A second man, 22-year-old Cameron Joshua, was also arrested and charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon.

The rapper born Kirshnik Khari Ball was shot dead at a bowling alley in the early morning hours of November 1. In a press conference today, Sergeant Michael Burrow of the Houston Police Department alleged that the shooting took place after an argument outside of 810 Billiards & Bowling.

According to Burrow, Ball was "an innocent bystander" caught in the gunfire. He and fellow Migos member Quavo were among around 30 people present on the scene of the altercation — almost all of which reportedly left without giving statements to the police.
A memorial service was held for Takeoff on November 11 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA. Justin Bieber performed at the star-studded event.
