Patrick Xavier Clark arrested for Migos rapper Takeoff’s murder

Houston cops have made an arrest in the shooting death of Migos rapper Takeoff outside a Texas bowling alley last month.

Patrick Xavier Clark, 33, has been taken into custody and charged with the murder, police announced Friday.

Cops said a fight erupted during a dice game at the venue and that Clark squeezed off shots at some point during the melee.

More than one person is believed to have fired a weapon during the fracas, according to police.

While Takeoff’s uncle and bandmate Quavo was seen arguing with others before the shooting, Takeoff was not directly involved in the skirmish, according to police.

The rapper, whose real name was Kirsnick Khari Ball, was struck in the head and torso by bullets during the chaos and pronounced dead at the scene.

On Wednesday, authorities arrested another suspect in the case, but said he was not the triggerman.

Cameron Joshua, 22, is being charged with gun possession and could emerge as a cooperating witness in the case against Clark.

Police said the party was packed with witnesses who all scattered from the bowling alley without offering statements to police, complicating their monthlong probe into the shocking incident.

Quavo has been inconsolable since his brother’s passing, according to reports.

“I’ve been going to sleep and waking up hoping that all of this is a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare,” the “Bad and Boujee” rapper, real name Quavious Keyate Marshall, wrote on Instagram recently.

Offset, Takeoff’s cousin and a former member of Migos, also paid tribute following the loss, writing: “My heart is shattered and I have so many things to say, but I can’t find the words. I’ve been going to sleep and waking up hoping that all of this is a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare.”
