Migos rapper Takeoff was killed by a “stray bullet”, his record company has claimed in a statement. The 28-year-old, Grammy-nominated musician died on Tuesday in a shooting at a bowling alley in Houston, Texas. Paying tribute, his record label said in a statement: “Senseless violence and a stray bullet has taken another life from this world and we are devastated.” Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said he did not want to speculate on whether Takeoff was the target. He added: “Based on what people say about him, he’s well respected, non-violent. “I would not expect him to be involved but I do want to wait on the investigation – but we have no reason to believe that he was involved in anything criminal at the time, just as people describe him as very peaceful, loving, a great entertainer.” He pleaded with witnesses at the scene to come forward. “Please step up, get the information to us so we can bring some closure to this family who’s hurting right now,” he said at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.(BBC)…[+]
