TakeOff: Woman shot during rapper’s murder speaks out

take offthe killing involved a woman caught in the crossfire, and she has now shared what she remembers from that fateful night.

On Wednesday (Jan. 18), Sydney Leday, a 24-year-old Houston, Texas native, sat down for an exclusive interview with KHOU 11 and recounted the moments that led to her subsequently being shot in the head in front of a bowling alley in Houston on November 1, 2022.

According to Leday, she remembered hearing gunshots and trying to run away when she felt a stabbing sensation in the back of her head. She fell to the ground, but the person she was with picked her up and walked to their car.

Leday said the whole ordeal felt like a scary movie and that she had reached out to her mother to tell her what happened and to get straight to the hospital.

“I told her to come to the hospital, but I ended up having a seizure, so I was on the phone with her the whole time,” Leday said. “I remember it all. I felt the stab in the back of my head. I felt like I fell and the person I was with picked me up and put me in the car, but it was just like a scary movie.”

She continued: “Ironically, it was Halloween night. I was wearing a nun outfit, I had blood all over me and it was still my birthday weekend. So I mean like any other 24-year-old, I was just out partying and celebrate because I really never dressed up for Halloween and it was something I was excited about.”

Leday went on to say that she and her friends came to the bowling alley around midnight and enjoyed themselves at the event. She recalled that the night was “normal” with no signs of danger.

“It was pretty normal in my opinion. I didn’t get scared that it wasn’t any arguments or anything until the event was actually over,” she said, holding back tears. “And um. Yeah, that’s when I knew something was wrong afterwards because I thought these people arguing were just playing off, like I said, the energy that was in the room before everybody was around the table playing a game of dice. So I thought it was like, you know, some like friendly banter.”

Leday said to see the argument and Quavo getting upset alerted her that something wasn’t right. She tried to run to safety, but ended up being shot in the head.

“Quavo, he was upset, so I noticed something was wrong. Every time I noticed, he got really upset and he was on his way. So the party wouldn’t go on, and I then when everything broke out and I tried to run, but I didn’t go very far. Yeah, it was like a movie.”

The 24-year-old revealed she has not gone to therapy to deal with the trauma of that night and admitted she suffered severe panic attacks when she was released from hospital.

The argument that led to the shooting that night was allegedly crowded dice, according to a statement from comedian Shawty Shawty. That Wild ‘N’ Out star appeared as a guest on The Ugly Money Podcastwhere he shed more light on The Nov. 1 shooting that tragically took the Migos rapper’s life.

Shawty claimed that he spoke with one of TakeOff and Quavo’s cousins ​​and was told that the altercation began after Quavo thought the men he was playing with had rigged the dice.

“I have to say ‘alleged’ because I was told over the phone from a reliable source… They say that Quavo dominates in a whole bunch of different things — basketball, all of that. So they say that they had been shooting basketballs earlier and then they got to the bowling alley and they said it was a dice game,” he said.

“They say Quavo noticed the dice weren’t right and that’s where the argument started. Everybody knows Quavo has a mouth on him, everybody knows Quavo would talk trash. I don’t think it was the atmosphere to talk shit in. I think they were on someone’s tab and you have to respect [that].”
