LANCASTER, Texas — The brother of retired NFL cornerback Aqib Talib has been identified by police as a suspect in the shooting death of a coach at a Texas youth soccer game.

Yaqub Salik Talib is a suspect in Saturday night’s shooting that killed a man, Lancaster, Dallas-area police said. Authorities have not yet identified the man, but family and friends say he was a coach.

Yaqub Talib was not in custody late Sunday and an arrest warrant has been issued for him. The Associated Press sent a message Monday asking for updated information on the search for him.

Yaqub Talib is the brother of Aqib Talib, a five-time Pro Bowler who announced his retirement in 2020. Aqib Talib was named as a contributor to Prime Video’s Thursday Night Football last month.

Dallas TV station WFAA reported that the brothers are coaches of the North Dallas United Bobcats youth football team.

Coaches of youth team DEA Dragons identified the man killed as coach Mike Hickmon, WFAA reported. Dragons President Mike Freeman said the argument began when Hickmon tried to pick up a football and someone kicked him away.

“I don’t know how to explain it to the kids. This is the part I’m stuck on right now. how do i explain it to them Why?” said Freimann. “It’s something these kids will remember for the rest of their lives.”
