This is just horrible.
Will Smith, a former football star for the NFL‘s New Orleans Saints, has been shot and killed after an apparent case of road rage on Saturday night.
Smith and his wife were driving in New Orleans when they got into a fender bender with another driver.
The other driver confronted Smith, allegedly firing six to eight shots, according to witnesses, killing the ex-defensive end and seriously injuring his wife. The alleged shooter, Cardell Hayes, has been arrested and booked on charges of second-degree murder.
Smith’s car was allegedly bumped from behind by another — presumably Hayes’, though that’s not yet clear — after which it rolled into a car ahead of his being driven by one of Smith’s friends.
Our thoughts go out to Smith, his wife, and all their family, friends, and loved ones.
