The Calgary Stampeders say defensive back Mylan Hicks died on Sunday morning. He was 23.
The team said in statement that Hicks’ “life was taken in act of violence.”
The Calgary Police said earlier Sunday that they were investigating after a fatal shooting outside a Calgary night club.
The police statement said the victim had been transported to hospital in life-threatening condition before dying of his injuries, but the release did not identify the victim.
