A tragic incident that shocked the community

A Six Nations man and a passionate Buffalo Bills fan was shot and killed on Sunday night after attending a football game in Miami, Florida. Dylan Isaacs, 30, was leaving the game with his friends when he was allegedly hit by a car driven by a gunman who then fired multiple rounds at him. Isaacs died despite the efforts of first responders.

The shooting occurred in the parking lot of Hard Rock Stadium, where the Buffalo Bills defeated the Miami Dolphins 27-24 in a close game. Isaacs had posted a happy photo of himself on Facebook before the game, showing his support for his favourite team. He was also an employee of the Six Nations of the Grand River (SNGR), a First Nation community in Ontario, where he worked as an archaeological community monitor since 2021.
