Sydney Leday was caught up in the shooting that killed Migos rapper Takeoff, and now, she is speaking out for the first time. According to the lady, she was celebrating her birthday and Halloween with her friends on the night of the shooting.
In all, I’m happy she’s alive. VladTV got the details;
The 24-year-old told KHOU11 that she was celebrating her birthday and Halloween with a group of friends the night of the shooting. Leday said that things were going good until she saw Quavo getting mad while playing in a dice game. She added that she and some friends started running from the scene, but she fell to the ground after feeling a stinging sensation in the back of her head.
Sydney’s friends drove her to Memorial Hermann Hospital, 12 minutes away from where she was shot. Leday says she suffered a seizure on the way to the hospital. She then added, “I was in the hospital for about a week. I didn’t really want to be there. I really just can say I’m grateful to be here.”
Leday was intubated and in a coma while in the hospital, and she revealed that she didn’t know other people were injured, including Takeoff, who died at the scene from his injuries. She added that she replays the incident in her head since coming home, and Leday says she’s suffered from panic attacks as a result.
The alleged shooter is out on bond.
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.
