The Houston Police Department received a call about a man who had been shot in or around the head at 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston at around 2:30 a.m. Emergency audio obtained by a news outlet announced five shots had been fired, as Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene.

In footage obtained by the news publication, Migos member Quavo — who was not injured during the altercation — hovered over his nephew as blood pooled around his body. The horrific video clips portrayed the Quavo allegedly on the phone with a 911 operator asking, "what does she need to do?" as a woman at the scene announced she was a nurse and offered to help the unconscious victim.

Individuals at the scene originally tried to move Takeoff's body, but reportedly put him back down as Quavo, 31, cried for help. Two other victims suffered gunshot wounds and were taken to a nearby hospital in private vehicles. It is unclear what their conditions are at this time.
