Brother of ex-NFL star wanted for shooting coach at youth football game; disturbing video of altercation

Dallas-area police are on the lookout for the brother of ex-NFL star Aqib Talib in connection with a fatal shooting at a youth football game.

Talib’s sibling is a suspect in the slaying of coach Mike Hickmon, 43, who was appallingly gunned down Saturday evening after a fight reportedly broke out between coaches and referees at Lancaster Community Park in Texas.

During the melee that occurred at the conclusion of the game, which may have also involved parents, someone allegedly pulled out a gun and started firing.

According to a press release from Lancaster PD, “During the disagreement [among coaching staff and the officiating crew], the opposing coaching staff were involved in a physical altercation, and one of the individuals involved in the altercation discharged a firearm, striking one adult male…Officers have identified the suspect involved in this offense as a black male, Yaqub Salik Talib, and there is an active warrant for his arrest.”

Hickmon, who coached for Dragon Elite Academy, was tragically pronounced dead at a local hospital after responding paramedics transported him there.

Yaqub Talib, 39, is reportedly wanted for murder, and detectives have asked the public’s help in locating him.

Fox 4 Dallas-Fort Worth has reported that Yaqub Talib is currently the only suspect in the incident.

Making this situation even more ghastly, Hickmon’s son, age 9, who was one of the Dragon players, reportedly witnessed what happened on the field, along with other kids on both teams.

In the purported video embedded below that has received nearly 400,000 views on Twitter as of this writing, it appears that five shots rang out during the scuffle, but the footage does not capture anyone using a firearm.

One man is seen perhaps arguing with a ref, and other adults were brawling.


Aqib Talib, 36, also reportedly attended the game. His lawyer told TMZ that “Aqib was present when this unfortunate incident occurred and is very distraught and devastated 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.”

Aqib, who is a Fox Sports commentator, played for several NFL teams and won a Super Bowl ring with the Denver Broncos.

According to ABC Dallas affiliate WFAA, the Talib brothers were coaches on the other team, the North Dallas United Bobcats.

Dragons’ president Mike Freeman told WFAA that “We saw one of our coaches laying down on the ground right there. It was tough. More than just a coach. Great father, great man, great role model, great mentor,” he said of his respected colleague.

Freeman added that “the argument started when Hickmon went to pick up a football and someone kicked it away. That led to the fighting and eventually the shooting,” WFAA claimed.

Watch a report aired by Fox 4 Dallas-Fort Worth:

All suspects are presumed innocent until or unless they are convicted in a court of law of any alleged crimes.
