Houston, TX –

Quavo’s assistant has been identified as one of the victims in Houston shooting that took the life of Takeoff earlier this week.

According to TMZlaw enforcement sources said Joshua “Wash” Washington was shot outside the bowling alley on Tuesday (November 1), and the 23-year-old was rushed from the scene to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Washington reportedly serves as Quavo’s day-to-day assistant and is part of the operational management team at Huncho Records.

In addition to Wash and Takeoff, there was also a 24-year-old woman shot as the other victim who is expected to survive her injuries.

Takeoff (real name Kirshnik Ball) was shot several times and was pronounced dead upon the arrival of doctors at the scene. The Harris County Medical Examiner is listed his cause of death as “penetrating gunshot wounds to the head and torso in the arm.”

In a clip obtained by TMZ, Quavo can be seen and heard arguing with someone outside of a Houston bowling alley. Takeoff can be seen standing just a few feet away from the tense exchange, which appears to be centered around basketball. Quavo, who was reportedly playing dice at the time, can be heard saying, “Man, I don’t care about basketball, bruh … Stop playing like that, bruh.”
