This sounds like a horrible scene from the movie Belly. A well known and loved soccer star from St. Lucia was murdered execution style shortly after celebrating a victorious game while his friends looked on in horror.
A St. Lucia soccer star’s jubilant victory celebration was cut short by a deadly .45-caliber bullet, fired execution-style into his car Monday on a dark Brooklyn street.
Isidore Phillip Tisson, 27, scored the goal that sent his country to the finals in a big tournament, then hit a Crown Heights club where he had the deejay give him shout-outs all night.
Headed home after 4 a.m., he had just stopped to buy some bananas when a gunman crept up and fired a single shot that crashed through his skull and hit the woman next to him.
“I heard the noise and then I felt the pain,” the wounded woman, Shawnette Justin, 24, told the Daily News in a bedside interview at Brookdale University Hospital. “When I turned to see what was wrong, I saw the blood coming from his head.”
Three other women in the car were unhurt. The driver stepped on the gas, but by the time they got to the hospital, the athlete was dead. “He didn’t say anything on the way. His eyes were moving a little, but then nothing,” Justin said. “I was holding his head, but then I couldn’t any longer.”
The motive for the murder of the team’s top striker was unclear.
