The mystery surrounding the shooting of rapper Takeoff is yet to be unraveled. Still, according to an affidavit, the Migos rapper’s murder happened after a punch was thrown in Quavo’s defense in the wake of the confusion.
Vlad got the details;
New details have surfaced from the unfortunate night that found Takeoff of Migos losing his life. An affidavit viewed by ‘New York Times’ reporter Joe Coscarelli mapped out a timeline of events that led to Takeoff’s death.
The affidavit said Quavo was in the middle of a lucrative dice game out of the 810 Billiards and Bowling Alley in Houston, Texas, when he got into an argument after losing money to two people. One man, identified as Willie Bland, reportedly got into an altercation with one of the individuals Quavo lost his money to.
From there, two people fired off guns, with Bland being confirmed as one of the people. The affidavit noted Bland’s location at the time of the shooting was not consistent with injuries suffered by Takeoff to blame him for the rapper’s death. The affidavit stated alleged Takeoff killer Patrick Xavier Clark was the only person seen firing off a weapon. Clark was charged because of fingerprints left on a wine bottle he was holding during the shooting. The wine bottle was left in the parking lot ahead of Clark fleeing to the House of Blues.
Clark’s friends say he is being set up.
Friends of Takeoff’s alleged killer, Patrick Xavier Clark, say the promoter has been set up and that there’s no way he killed the rapper.
Speaking to Daily Beats, Houston rapper Jmali claimed Clark said his friend is not a violent person. “You could see by the reactions of everyone that we’re shocked because that’s not the type of person [Clark] is,” Jmali told The Daily Beast. “He was about business, not violence.”
A second friend added, “I know him. He’s not like that. I honestly feel like they got the wrong guy. He doesn’t get mad or hostile. He’s very nice and thoughtful. That’s all I have to say. I feel he is being framed.”
In court documents obtained by Media Take Out, police are charging Clark with “felony murder,” and not murder. Felony murder occurs when a person is killed during the commission of a crime.
Clark’s attorney claims his client is innocent.
