Here’s some sad news out of New Orleans today: former NFL runningback and USC standout Joe McKnight was senselessly shot to death after a road rage incident.
NOLA.com spoke to a witness who said she saw McKnight trying to apologize to another man before things escalated:
A witness, who declined to give her name, said she was leaving a store in the area when she saw a man at the intersection yelling at another man, who was trying to apologize. The man who was yelling shot the other man more than once, she said.
She said the shooter shot the man, stood over him and said “I told you don’t you f— with me.” Then he fired again, she said.
A man named Ronald Gasser is in police custody for the shooting:
McKnight played four seasons in the NFL (three with the Jets), but was best known for being billed as the “next Reggie Bush” during his USC tenure.
