Texas: Rapper Takeoff shot: police catch suspect

A suspect has been arrested a month after the death of US rapper Takeoff in Houston. The 33-year-old was charged with murder, the Texas city police said on Friday. He is said to have shot and killed 28-year-old Takeoff - whose real name is Kirsnick Khari Ball - on November 1 in Houston. In addition, a 22-year-old was reported in connection with the incident for illegal possession of weapons.

According to investigators, the fatal incident happened after a private party at a bowling alley. Shots were fired during an argument. Sergeant Michael Burrow described the rapper as an "uninterested bystander" on Friday. He was unarmed and not involved in the argument. "We lost a good man," said Police Chief Troy Finner.

Together with rappers Quavo and Offset, Takeoff formed the Grammy-nominated group Migos from Atlanta, Georgia. Migos celebrated successes with hits like "Versace", "Bad and Boujee" and "MotorSport". Thousands said goodbye at a large funeral service in mid-November. Musicians such as Drake, Justin Bieber, Chloe Bailey and Yolanda Adams also paid tribute to him. His family set up a foundation dedicated to community projects to combat gun violence.
