After a fatal shooting during a minor football game in Lancaster, Texas, Yaqub Talib, the brother of former NFL cornerback Aqib Talib, is accused of murder. At the conclusion of the game on Saturday, there was a confrontation, and Yaqub Talib allegedly drew a gun and shot the victim.
The Lancaster Police Department issued a statement outlining the alleged shooting’s course of events. Yaqub Talib was recognized as the gunman, and an arrest warrant was issued for him.
According to a statement released by the police department via Benjamin Allbright, “on arrival, officers were informed of a conflict between coaching staff and the officiating crew.” “A physical incident between the opposing coaching staff occurred during the disagreement, and one of the participants fired a gun, hitting one adult male. The sufferer was sent to a nearby hospital for treatment, but he eventually passed away there.”
The Associated Press reported that Yaqub Talib turned himself in to the authorities on Monday. Yaqub Talib’s legal representative, Clark Birdsall, issued a statement on behalf of his client.
Yaqub Talib “regrets the unfortunate loss of life but self surrendered this morning so that he may have the opportunity to explain his side of the event,” according to Birdsall. Birdsall gave no additional information about Yaqub Talib’s viewpoint.
Aqib Talib was present when the shooting took place, and his lawyer provided TMZ Sports with a statement.
The statement from Aqib Talib’s attorney read, “Aqib was present when this awful tragedy occurred and is profoundly distressed and devastated over this terrible loss of life.” He wishes to offer his sympathies to the victim’s family as well as to everyone who witnessed this tragic event.
Throughout his 12-year NFL career, Aqib Talib earned five visits to the Pro Bowl and won a Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos. Prior to the 2020 season, Aqib Talib announced his retirement and is now an analyst for Amazon Prime.
