Ex-NFL Star’s Brother in Custody After Youth Football Coach Shot Dead

CBS News, August 15, 2022

The brother of former star NFL cornerback Aqib Talib is in custody following the fatal shooting of a coach at a youth football game Saturday night, CBS Dallas reports. Police in Lancaster, Texas earlier said they identified Yaqub Salik Talib as a suspect and issued a warrant for his arrest.

Talib turned himself in to law enforcement on Wednesday, the station reported.

The victim was identified as 43-year-old Michael Hickmon, a coach with one of the teams, CBS Dallas adds.

He died at a hospital, the station says.

The shooting apparently happened during an argument between one of the coaching staffs and the officiating crew, CBS Colorado reports.

Video of the alleged incident shows a referee attempting to calm a man as both walk toward a camera. However, a fight breaks out behind the pair involving several individuals. A series of five gunshots is heard before the person recording the video appears to seek cover.


It all happened in front of the young kids – some younger than 9-years-old – who were playing and watching the game.

Another coach told CBS Dallas many of them are now scarred.
