THE suspect accused of killing the rapper TakeOff from the music group Migos has been indicted for murder, officials say.
The musician was fatally shot after a private party in November 2022 at a bowling alley in Houston, Texas.
Patrick Xavier Clark was arrested in connection to the killing in December 2022, KHOU reported.
The shooting happened after a dice game outside the venue led to a heated argument.
Clark was allegedly caught by a surveillance camera pulling out a gun and firing several shots, police say.
He had a bottle of wine in his hand at the time.
Another man, Cameron Joshua, also allegedly fired at TakeOff. He’s currently facing weapons charges.
Police say Clark fled to a nearby music venue, where he left the bottle.
Fingerprints on the bottle matched the suspect’s, police say.
He was arrested during a traffic stop a month after the shooting took place.
Clark reportedly had a gun on him at the time, but not the one used during the murder.
The suspect reportedly had plans to flee to Mexico, although his attorneys said this was just supposed to be a vacation.
TakeOff’s uncle and fellow Migos member Quavo was also present at the scene of the shooting.
Shortly after TakeOff died, a funeral ceremony was held at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, the rapper’s hometown.
“I’m proud we saw the world and done things we couldn’t ever imagine together,” Quavo wrote in an Instagram post after the ceremony.
The indictment means that Clark has been formally charged by a grand jury and will stand trial.
