Police have launched a manhunt to find the brother of ex-NFL star Aqib Talib after he allegedly killed a football coach during an argument between parents at the end of the match in Lancaster, Texas.

Yaqub Talib, 39, is now wanted on charges of murder after he allegedly shot the youth coach dead at the under-9s children’s football game on Saturday evening.

The article goes on to state the following:

Friends and family identified the man who was killed as Mike Hickmon, who coached the Dragon Elite Academy team.


According to the Lancaster Police Department, Tlaib and some other parents got into a physical altercation with the referees on the field, prompting other parents to either join in or trying to break up the fight.

Suddenly five gunshots rang out, and Coach Hickman, 43, was left motionless on the field, right in front of his 9-year-old son.

Several parents called 9-11, while others tried in vain to save Coach Hickman by performing CPR.

The gunman was identified as Yaqub Tlaib, who was wearing a black hoodie and hat. Police are now searching for him.

The suspected gunman’s brother, ex-NFL star Aqib Talib, was also at the game, and has released a statement, according to TMZ.  His lawyer reported stated, “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.”

One local parent shared the following statement on Facebook:

As many may have already heard Michael Mike Hickmon , a father, former athlete, a coach, mentor, a pillar of our youth football community and a member of Dragon Elite Academy coaching family lost his life yesterday at a YOUTH FOOTBALL GAME. Although the older DEA teams were not in attendance at this event it still has rocked us all and really made all of us reevaluate EVERYTHING.

This is something, no coach, parent or player should ever have to prepare for while participating in youth sports. We will not be playing any games today and as the president of DEA I welcome suggestions on how we can help our 9u players along with Mikes family recover from witnessing and experiencing something so traumatic at such a young age. We ask that you pray for his family, the Dragon family and let’s use this forum come together and figure out ways to make it be about our kids.

  1. Shocking, really? Bunch of thug punks and mentioning the thug filled nfl is laughable. Took a knee from all the thug sports, it’s been ruined and a waste of time to support these anti American punks
