Takeoff, one-third of the highly influential Atlanta rap group Migos, died Tuesday in a Houston shooting at age 28, a representative confirmed to The Associated Press.

Houston police said one person was fatally shot and two others were injured early Tuesday at a private party attended by members of Migos.

Police responded shortly after 2:30 a.m. to reports of a shooting at 810 Billiards & Bowling, where dozens of people had gathered on a balcony outside of the bowling alley, which is on the third floor, police said. Officers discovered one man dead when they arrived.

Security guards who were in the area heard the shooting but did not see who did it, Willkens said. Two other people were injured and taken to hospitals in private vehicles, police said.
