Police have arrested Takeoff’s alleged killed
Houston Police Department announced on Friday (December 2) that they had arrested the person believed to be responsible for Takeoff’s shooting death. According to Fox Atlanta 5, after Take’s death, Patrick Xavier Clark who’s being charged with Take’s murder applied for an expedited passport to Mexico.
During the “peaceful” arrest, the 33-year-old suspect, who’s also known as DJ Phat in Houston, was found with a large amount of cash.
Homicide Division Sgt. Michael Burrow revealed that witnesses were reluctant to come forward with information about the murder, forcing the authorities to take their time checking surveillance and phone footage to identify the fatal shooter.
Burrow added that by recreating the crime scene, “we were able to deduce that Patrick Clark is the lethal shooter in the case, that’s why he’s charged with murder.”
“We’re going to come and get you, and we come and get you professionally, but we come in force with everything that we have, and he gave up,” Houston Chief Police Troy Finner recalled addressing the suspected killer.
Clark is being charged with Take’s killing and his bond is set at $2M. “We made a promise that we would get the individual that’s responsible for the murder of TakeOff in custody,” Finner revealed in a press statement. “Yesterday evening, we arrested Patrick Xavier Clark, 33 years old, and he was charged with the murder of TakeOff.”
