The alleged shooter responsible for the death of Migos rapper Takeoff has been arrested by Houston police. Last month, a tragic murder occurred outside a Texas bowling alley. The rapper’s alleged shooter has been arrested along with another suspect. According to law enforcement, the alleged shooter fired at Takeoff at some point during a dice game at a bowling alley. It was noted that Quavo, the rapper’s uncle, and another person argued at the venue before the shooting. He was an “innocent bystander” who was shot twice- once in the head, then once in the torso- and was not involved in the squabble. He was pronounced dead at the scene. His real name is Kirsnick Khari Ball.
Patrick Xavier Clark was taken into custody by law enforcement on Friday. Murder charges have since been filed against him. The 33-year-old suspect was identified as the “lethal shooter” in the case based on physical and ballistic evidence and a shooting reconstruction, Houston Police Sergeant Michael Burrow said. As an additional suspect, 22-year-old Cameron Joshua was also charged. He was not the triggerman, however, according to authorities. In addition to being charged with gun possession, Cameron may also be viewed as a cooperating witness in the case against Patrick Xavier Clark.

Who Is Patrick Xavier Clark? Arrested As The Murder Suspect In Rapper Takeoff’s Shooting
In the Houston club scene, Patrick Xavier Clark was known as DJ Pat. As a promoter of The Flame HTX, a strip club, he had gained a reputation for his work. On his Instagram page, where he had over 20,000 followers, he often promoted the venue. Jmali revealed in an interview that he did not perceive Clark as violent. According to the Jmali, Takeoff would still be alive if Patrick Xavier Clark didn’t have a gun at the time of his death. During the interview, Jmali said: You could see by everyone’s reactions that we were shocked because that isn’t Clark’s nature… he is a businessman, not a violent person. According to Jmali, DJ Pat was quiet and did his work in a quiet manner, similar to Takeoff. That’s why everyone here is surprised by this. TMZ reports that Clark’s bail is being requested at $1 million, according to court documents. In the days leading up to his arrest, law enforcement discovered that he had applied for an expedited passport.
He had received a passport when he was caught, and he had a large amount of money on him. Upon release on bail, prosecutors want the judge to issue an order prohibiting Clark from talking to a specific group of people – Takeoff’s family, J. Prince, Jr. Shakur Stevenson, and anyone from Shakur’s “place of employment.” As part of the docs, prosecutors also request that Clark be placed under house arrest if he is released on bail. According to reports, Quavo has been inconsolable since his brother passed away. The “Bad and Boujee” rapper, real name Quavious Keyate Marshall, wrote on Instagram recently, I’ve been going to sleep hoping it’s a dream, but it’s reality. The former member of Migos, Offset, also paid tribute to Takeoff after the loss, writing: “I can’t find the words to express my sorrow. It feels like a nightmare, as I go to sleep hoping that all of this is a nightmare.
