Takeoff was in Houston with his uncle and fellow Migos group member, Quavo, at the time of the shooting.

It was first alleged that the young rapper was shot over a game of dice, however, inside sources from the bowling alley have said that Takeoff was not involved in the argument that caused the shooting and was merely a bystander who became caught in the fatal crossfire.

An eyewitness told that the event had, "nothing to do with no damn dice game. No money situation."

The eyewitness also claimed that, "This was an argument between two camps," and that both Migos rappers were, "trying to be the mediator between the people who were arguing."

Some have pinned blame of Takeoff's death onto Quavo, but the eyewitness claimed the rapper had no control over the tragic event.

"Everyone is saying this is Quavo's fault," the eyewitness told, "Quavo had nothing to do with the s---."

A heartbreaking video was captured moments after the shooting and depicted a frantic Quavo standing over his nephew's body while pleading with a 911 operator for help.

Houston Police have identified a man they believe is in connection with the shooting. Takeoff was 28-years-old at the time of his tragic death.
