Takeoff Death Investigation Reaveled One Month After Fatal Shooting of Migos Rapper
Takeoff Death Investigation: Just over a month after the death of the rapper Takeoff, police are expected to hold a press conference on Friday afternoon to discuss their investigation. After a private party at a bowling alley in downtown Houston, the rapper was shot. He was a member of the Grammy Award-nominated group Migos.
On Wednesday, law enforcement announced that a man had been charged in connection with the investigation. In court, however, prosecutors claimed that Cameron Joshua, 22, was not the shooter and had not fired a shot.
Rapper Kirsnick Khari Ball, whose real name was not used for the music industry, was shot and killed at 2:30 a.m. on November 1 after a private party outside of 810 Billiards & Bowling, and Joshua has been charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon for allegedly being in possession of a handgun.
Prosecutor Matt Gilliam of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office told reporters after Wednesday’s hearing, “We believe Cameron Joshua has been appropriately charged in this case and we are continuing our investigation into the death of Takeoff.”

Joshua’s attorney, Christopher Downey, denied to reporters that he has seen evidence linking his client to the shooting of Takeoff. Downey summed up the situation by saying, “The bottom line is… Cameron Joshua did not shoot Takeoff.”

Downey replied, “I don’t think Joshua knows who shot Takeoff “If we decide to, we can bring that up with the district attorney’s office. We’re being held in contempt of court right now because we’re keeping quiet while we’re being accused of crimes.”
According to the Houston Police Department, at least two people fired weapons during Takeoff’s murder. Perforating gunshot wounds to the head and torso that entered the arm were listed as the primary cause of death in the autopsy of Takeoff.
