Joshua Cameron, 16, popularly known as Lil Cam 5th, was arrested in Houston on November 26, 2022, as the lead suspect in the Takeoff murder.
Lil Cam, the accused murderer of Migos member Take, was apprehended and brought into custody last week by Houston police on a felony charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon.
Joshua Cameron, also known as Lil Cam 5th, is a 16-year-old Mob Ties Records artist.
J Prince Jr., the founder, and CEO of Mob Ties has also been accused by “Black Twitter” of having something to do with Takeoff’s death.
Lil Cam has been held in the Harris County jail since his arrest on November 22.
Even though he is being detained on unrelated charges, authorities are said to be questioning him about the Takeoff shooting.
Lil Cam was released on bail
Lil Cam was released in April 2022 after being released on bond for a previous offense.
The new warrant violates the terms of his previous release, and he might face additional charges if detectives uncover him to be involved in Takeoff’s death.
Takeoff died in Houston’s 810 Billiards & Bowling. He was with Quavo at a private gathering. Houston Police said that an altercation outside the venue during a dice game resulted in firearms being fired, killing Takeoff. On November 11, his life was celebrated at State Farm Arena in his hometown of Atlanta.
Chief Finner gave a vague update on the ongoing investigation to KPRC 2 earlier this week (as reported by iHeart), saying he was “confident” that a suspect would be apprehended and dismissing any sense that his department’s pursuit was winding down.
“I feel good about where we’re going,” he remarked. “You remember I met with his mother on that day?” I spoke with that lady personally, made a pledge, and a lot was spoken. We want all murder investigations to be moved up when people are slain. But the most important thing is that we get it properly. I don’t want to send family members on a rollercoaster trip just to return and say, “Whoa, that wasn’t the person.” I simply want everyone to be patient and understand that justice will be served in Houston, Texas.”
