“Takeoff, one-third of Migos, is dead after an early morning shooting in Houston … TMZ Hip Hop has confirmed.
Law enforcement sources, and multiple witnesses, tell us the fatal incident went down shortly after 2:30 AM … that’s when cops got the call for a man shot at a bowling alley called 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston.
We’re told Takeoff and Quavo were there playing dice when an altercation broke out and that’s when someone opened fire, shooting Takeoff … either in the head or near his head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.”
While speaking to his team on Wednesday morning, Sanders told his team they wouldn’t be allowed to leave the team hotel once they arrive in Houston to face Texas Southern.
“So, that eliminates all y’all leaving that hotel, ’cause it ain’t happening until I give you further notice.”
Sanders went on to tell his team that they may need to make life changes to prevent similar incidents from happening to them.
“You cannot kick it with the same dudes you kicked it with,” Sanders continued. “You cannot associate in the same realms that you associated with. You gon’ have to change if you expect change.”
Sanders was praised for his actions.
I love this man dude ….. a true protector https://t.co/9DjjAJdSj2
