USA Football is deeply saddened by the violent incidents at a youth football game in Texas this weekend, where a coach was shot and killed.

There is no place in your world - certainly not in any youth sport - for this kind of violence and blatant disregard for human life.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and all those hurt by this horrific and tragic incident.

Tied to the fatal shooting is former Pro Bowl cornerback Aaqib Talib's brother, Yakub.

According to reports, eyewitness testimony has linked one of the Talib brothers "possibly" as a triggerman.

Active warrant issued for the arrest of Yakub Talib

And Lancaster police are looking for any and all help in finding the whereabouts of the Texas native.
