Aqib Talib’s brother allegedly shot and killed a man during a youth football match last weekend. Aqib Talib was reportedly close to the gunman at the time of the incident.
TMZ.com reports that a video of the incident shows that Aqib Talib was “just a few feet” away from the man who fired the shots. His brother, Yaqub Talib, is said to have pulled the trigger.
Aqib Talib’s lawyer admitted in a statement that Aqib was indeed there at the time of the shooting.
“Aqib was present when this unfortunate incident took place and is very distraught and devastated by this terrible loss of life,” explains the lawyer. “He would like to extend his condolences to the victim’s family and to everyone who witnessed this unfortunate tragedy.” Yaqub Talib turned himself in on Monday. Aqib has not been charged with any crime. Based on a video obtained by TMZ.com, “Aqib was in the middle of the incident,” but “he was never seen at the violence.” Talib spent a dozen seasons in the NFL playing for the Buccaneers, Patriots. Broncos and Rams. He’s been hired to serve as an analyst for Amazon’s Thursday night pregame show.
