Takeoff was tragically shot dead in the early hours of November 1 while attending a private event with Quavo at 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston. The beloved 28-year-old Migos rapper’s celebration of life was last Friday, November 11, at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena. The following day, Quavo shared a heartbreaking Instagram tribute to his nephew and musical collaborator. Offset also took to Instagram to express his overwhelming grief.
The grieving process will continue indefinitely, but those closest to Takeoff want the search for his suspected killer to end.
Kashara Marshall, Quavo’s sister and Takeoff’s aunt, posted a plea on her Instagram Story this week: “Find out who did this to my NEPHEW!!!!!!!!! By any MEANS.” The since-expired post was captured by Daily Loud and Vibe.

“A lot of people that were there fled the scene and did not stick around to give us statements, so we’re asking them to either call us at the homicide division at 713-308-3600 or if they would like remain anonymous, they can call Crime Stoppers,” Arrington said during the press conference. “We’re looking for any information at this time — any videos, any information.”
Finner added, “There were 40 people, at least, at this event. And people left, possibly out of fear. I ask you one thing, and I want this to resonate with everybody: What if it was your brother? What if it was your son? You would want somebody to step up. So, please, step up. Get the information to us so we can bring some closure to this family who’s hurting right now.”
