Takeoff’s Alleged Killer Continues To Claim Self-Defense

Patrick Xavier Clark, the man accused of fatally shooting Migos rapper Takeoff outside a Texas bowling alley last year, is claming self-defense following his latest court appearance.

Clark, who denies killing the Takeoff, has been on house arrest with a GPS monitor since January.

Houston Police first claims investigators determined he was the shooter by reconstructing the incident with video and ballistics evidence.

“He maintains his innocence. We do believe that he has a valid self-defense claim. I don’t think they can say with any degree of certainty that it was Patrick who actually fired the shot that took Takeoff’s life,” Clark’s attorney Letitia Quinones-Hollins told Rolling Stone.

“There was someone else who started the shooting, it was not Patrick Clark. He was in the same position that Takeoff was in, he was trying to get out of there alive as well. He didn’t have anything to do with the argument that occurred. He just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when people started firing weapons.”

Takeoff was hanging out with Quavo and Jas Prince in November 2022, who was celebrating his birthday, the night of his death. Several videos floated around on the internet as fans tried to solve the case.
