    Houston police have arrested two people in connection with the November 1st killing of 28-year-old Migos rapper Takeoff.

    33-year-old Patrick Clark was brought into custody and charged with murder on December 2nd, NBC News, reports, while Cameron Joshua was arrested on Nov. 22 and accused of felony possession of a weapon.

    Takeoff, born Kirshnik Khari Ball, was shot outside a downtown Houston bowling alley after leaving a private party with his uncle, 31-year-old Quavo, aka Quavious Keyate Marshall. According to officials, he was an innocent bystander to a heated argument that broke out at the entrance to the bowling alley, and at the time he was shot, he was not armed and not participating in the altercation. Houston Police Chief Troy Finner called Takeoff “well-respected and non-violent.”
