According to witnesses on the scene, Talib is accused of throwing the first punch and escalating the situation, leading to the former NFL star’s brother allegedly shooting and killing Hickmon.
Witnesses say he confronted the referees and Coach Hickmon.
Multiple witnesses have told WFAA it’s Aqib who escalated the situation.
“He threw the first punch and you see Mike trying to defend himself,” said Smith McKinney.
Police say Aqib’s brother Yaqub Talib fired multiple shots killing Hickmon in front of children and parents.
