Kirsnick Khari Ball, stage name Takeoff, was a celebrated rapped and a member of the hip-hop trio Migos. He was shot to death in November 2022 in Houston, Texas. The Migos is a grammy nominated group with several of their songs topping the billboard charts.
According to Quavo, Takeoff’s uncle, they were celebrating Jas Prince Jr’s father’s birthday when a heated argument started and gathered a large sum of people. Around 40 people gathered around 1 am after the party was over and two shots were fired. Takeoff died in the shooting. Although it was believed he wasn’t the intended target, he lost his life in the altercation.
Takeoff’s Murder suspect released
Takeoff‘s murder suspect, Patrick Xavier Clark’s bond was reduced from $2 million to $1 million. He is currently out of the jail. After the shooting in Houston, Texas, Clark was arrested the following month and charged with murder. The attorneys representing Clark argued that $2 million goes against the Texas constitution. His family was also unable to pay such hefty funds. Thus, the court granted the reduction in the bond.
Just one month after the killing, the murder suspect was set free. According to court documents verified by Complex, the suspect posted a bond for $1 million on Wednesday and will appear in court in early March.
What is going on now with the case?
Although Clark was released, he has to comply with some rules put by the court. The defense attorney for the man has also requested a $300,000 bond stating,
“Based on our review of that discovery, we feel comfortable that when the time is right that Mr. Clark will have a valid and meritorious claim for self-defense,”
The documents available publically say the alleged Takeoff killer has to “comply with GPS monitoring”. It further says,
“with the capability of notifying the court, law enforcement, Harris County Pretrial Services, defense counsel, and the Harris County District Attorney’s office immediately upon any potential violation, including but not limited to device tampering, failure to properly charge the device, or house arrest violations.”
The suspected murderer will also be under 24/7 house arrest. His passport and other related official documents have also been seized. A video was also presented at the court which directly linked Takeoff’s alleged shooter, Patrick Clark, directly to the 1 am shooting.
