*Josh Washington, Quavo’s personal assistant, is suing the Houston venue where Takeoff was killed.

Washington was injured in the shooting that killed the rapper on November 1, 2022, outside 810 Billiards & Bowling. The gunshot barely missed his colon, according to the lawsuit, Complex reports. 

Takeoff (born Kirsnick Khari Ball) was an innocent bystander to a dice game argument outside the bowling alley that led to the shooting, according to Houston police. We reported previously via CNN that he was unarmed and not involved in the argument that occurred after a party hosted by J. Prince Jr., son of Rap-A-Lot founder, J. Prince. Takeoff was shot in the head and the torso, according to the coroner’s report.

Attorneys Bakari Sellers and Audio Jones are representing Washington, Fox 7 Austin reports.  The lawsuit claims that the venue and event organizers didn’t provide enough security or emergency assistance before and after the shooting.

“810 Houston was warned that they needed extra security. They knew it was a hotspot for violent crime and that an after-hours event like this could turn deadly in a second. But they ignored those warnings and now they have blood on their hands,” Sellers said in a statement.

We reported previously that Titania Davenport, Takeoff’s mother, filed her own lawsuit against the venue in June. She is seeking $1 million in damages.

According to Rolling Stone, Davenport claims the venue didn’t utilize “screening mechanisms, [or] after-hour controls or security measures.”

Washington’s lawsuit also alleges that the defendants didn’t employ basic security measures. 

“They had no properly trained security personnel, adequate signage, lighting, or cameras. They had no screening to keep out weapons. They didn’t even have a working metal detector,” said Jones, Complex reports.

“There was no one,” said Washington. “The bullets started flying and no one came to help. There were no security guards trying to stop the shooting, no one came to help those of us who were hurt, no one at all. They just left us there to die.”
