Following the incident, the Lancaster Police Department released a statement that summarized their findings:
“Upon arrival, officers were notified of a disagreement among coaching staff and the officiating crew,” the Lancaster Police Department said in a statement. “During the disagreement 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. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment where he was later pronounced deceased.”
After retiring from the National Football League — in which he played for the Buccaneers, Patriot, Broncos, and Rams during the course of his career — Aqib has seen ventured into sports broadcasting and was recently hired as an analyst for Amazon’s Thursday night pregame show.
During his 12-year-long career, Talib made five Pro Bowls and won one Super Bowl with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in 2016.
