Very sad news coming out of New Orleans.

Former NFL player Joe McKnight was fatally shot in a road rage incident on Thursday afternoon.


The shooting, reported about 3 p.m., occurred at the intersection of Berman Highway and Holmes Boulevard.

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.

The victim’s body was on Behrman Highway, surrounded by a shield.

The violence has to stop! My condolences to the McKnight family.

I will update the post as the story is developing….
