Caribbean Football Star Murdered In Brooklyn

On Sunday, Phillip Tisson scored the winning goal for St. Lucia’s soccer team in its game against St. Kitts-Nevis in the Digicel Caribbean Cup tournament being held in Brooklyn. Hours later, he was shot dead.

Tisson, who’d turned 28 three days earlier, was celebrating his team’s victory with teammates at a Brooklyn club Sunday night. At around 3:30 a.m., he was sitting in a car outside the club with a woman. A man came up and shot Tisson in the head, killing him. Police have no motive yet. He leaves behind a three year-old daughter.
