Former Jets running back Joe McKnight was killed Thursday in a Louisiana road rage shooting, authorities said.
McKnight was standing outside of his car after an argument with another driver when he was shot around 2:43 p.m. in Tarrytown. According to Times-Picayune‘s Jonathan Bullington, a witness said that the shooter, Ronald Gasser, approached McKnight and said, “I told you, don’t you f–k with me.”
Gasser reportedly remained at the scene and handed his gun over to police voluntarily. Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said Gasser was released from custody overnight without being charged.
McKnight was a New Orleans native and was the national high school player of the year in 2006 and was praised for his running game during his college career at USC. He was a fourth round draft pick by the Jets in 2010 and played there for three seasons.
Football’s elite would get wind of the news and offer condolences on Twitter.
