Yaqub Salik Talib has been identified as the accused person in the Saturday night shooting, according to WFAA.

“Mr. Talib regrets the tragic loss of life but went ahead and turned himself into the law this morning so his side of the story could be told,” Birdsall said on Talib’s behalf.

The shooting occurred around 8:50 p.m. Saturday at Lancaster Community Park, located at 1749 Jefferson Street in Lancaster, which is in southeast Dallas County.
