“We lost a good man,” Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said, adding that he talked to Takeoff’s family, and thanked them for their patience as the department worked through facts and the investigation ahead of an arrest.

Takeoff, whose real name is Kirshnik Khari Ball, was shot in the early morning of Nov. 1 outside a bowling alley near the Texas city.

Ball was a member of the Atlanta hip-hop group Migos.

The group was best known for its hits like “Fight Night,” “Versace,” and “Walk It, Talk It.”
