A deadly shooting at a North Texas youth football game Saturday happened during an argument over the score, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
Former NFL cornerback Aqib Talib was right in the middle of a fight at the youth football game in Texas in which a coach was fatally shot, new video shows, with his brother Yaqub turning himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Witnesses identified Aqib Talib in the footage as wearing a hat and white sneakers at Lancaster Community Park in southeast Dallas County, where the incident took place. Multiple witnesses said Talib was the one who started the brawl due to him being upset about referees.
Released footage now shows Yaqub turning himself in to police on murder charges of coach Mike Hickmon.
Heath Mays, a coach on the opposing football team, told WFAA that Aqib “ran across the field and ran over on our sideline and got in the ref’s face.
“He threw the first punch, and you see Mike [Hickmon] trying to defend himself.”
Hickmon was the coach of the D.E.A. Dragons.
Dragons president Mike Freeman said Saturday’s fatal dispute began when Hickmon went to pick up a football, but someone kicked it away.
Aqib Talib’s lawyer, Frank Perez, issued a statement saying his client “was present when this unfortunate incident occurred and is very distraught and devasted over this terrible loss of life. He would like to convey his condolences to the family of the victim and to everyone who witnessed this unfortunate tragedy.”
