Following weeks of investigation into the tragic death of Migos rapper Takeoff, real name Kirsnick Khari Ball, the Houston Police Department has apprehended the suspected killer, Patrick Xavier Clark.

Sgt. Michael Burrow of the HPD Homicide Division had previously stated that authorities were struggling to find cooperative witnessing to aid in the apprehension of the murderer who fatally shot the rapper during an altercation at 810 Billiards & Bowling Houston.

Fox 5 Atlanta reports that to identify the gunman, authorities mainly relied on video surveillance and audio from cell phones. Investigators then used a reconstruction of the shooting to support the ballistic data.

“Through that we were able to deduce that Patrick Clark is the lethal shooter in the case, that’s why he’s charged with murder,” Burrow said in a press statement.

According to reports, Clark’s arrest – which took place on Thursday night on Sterling Green Boulevard – was peaceful.

St. Burrow went on to add, “There was a lucrative dice game that went on at the event. There was an argument that happened afterwards outside the bowling alley, which led to the shooting. I can tell you that Takeoff was not involved in playing in the dice game, he was not involved in the argument that happened outside. He was not armed.”

As per the statement, Clark “applied for an expedited passport by submitting a travel itinerary for an upcoming flight to Mexico” not long after he is said to have murdered Takeoff. A $2 million bond has been set for Clark.

Cameron Joshua, 22, was further detained and charged with felony weapon possession despite not firing a shot.
