Victorious St. Lucia soccer player shot dead in NY

A St. Lucian soccer player who scored a goal in a New York City

tournament and was celebrating his team’s victory has been shot and

killed.

The slaying of Isidore Phillip Tisson occurred early Monday

outside a nightclub in Brooklyn. Tisson’s coach says he had gone

there after scoring the winning goal on Sunday against St.

Kitts.

Police say a gunman shot the 27-year-old Tisson in the head as

he sat in a car outside the club. A woman who was with Tisson

suffered a chest wound.

No arrests have been made.
