Former NFL RB Joe McKnight was murdered during a road rage shooting in New Orleans on Thursday afternoon. Per TMZ...
quote:

law enforcement tells TMZ Sports.
The incident occurred at 2:43 PM. Family members identified the 28-year-old at the scene.

A witness told NOLA.com ... she saw McKnight trying to apologize to another man after some sort of traffic incident.

The witness says the man then pulled out a gun and shot McKnight -- and while standing over him screamed, "I told you not to f*** with me" ... then fired another shot into his body.

Cops say they have detained a man they believe to be the shooter -- 54-year-old Ronald Gasser.
Cops say McKnight did NOT have a gun at the time of the shooting.
Thoughts and prayers out to his family.

I can't bring myself to give a shite about this incident, primarily because it seems everyone wants to lie about it.

SWS always have self defense.

if they released him with no charges they believe it was self-defense, if McKnight chased him down and got out of his car and approached him in an aggressive manor, well, its hard to blame the guy in this day and age. Most states have the castle doctrine, which applies to your vehicle as well. You have the right to defense yourself as you should.. very tragic..

This is all very true, but goes against what many said happened. Its all hearsay, but too many people I spoke with say different.

Defend yourself from the evil man unarmed on the street.

Also, I am not saying that the entire incident was motivated by race. People I spoke standing around the scene said what they "heard". I was there after the words and shooting happened, but no one gets anything out of adding context to the murder of another. I could go into more detail, but this would be a very long post.

What does being black have to do with it? So only black people get shot on road rage incidents?? Okay then

I can't believe this. Being black is like a death sentence. How does any young man stay alive? This is horrible. Over what?

This happened minutes from my home, the murderer didn't take race out of the equation when he spoke racial slurs over McKnight's body after shooting him 3 times. His thoughts and actions spoke very clearly.

Mag St-witness say there were no racial slurs. Stop drinking the kool-aid.

New Orleans is so ghetto. It's a cesspool. Anyone who denies it is fooling themselves.

Get out of here with that talk. It's as beautiful as it is dangerous. I just wish the city would quit dragging itself down to these levels.

@stewie "I just wish the city would quit dragging itself down to these levels." What the frick does that even mean? Let's call a spade a spade and not dance around it like Mitch.

Considered how people been acting towards others after the election..he probably thought Joe was some "thug" and he's doing society a favor. I've seen people get really bold since the election.

Maybe this is the only time he was caught...

With the recent election he probably felt bold.

That's tragic and sad to hear. It Seems this is way too common in New Orleans now. Just to add something, he was a great high school player and did well in college and got his shot in the pros. I remember being pissed that LSU missed on him and he went to USC. RIP.
