Former NY Jet Joe McKnight Murdered
According to a report from NOLA.com, an apparent road rage incident led to the shooting death of former NFL player Joe McKnight.
A witness said she saw two men in a heated argument at an intersection in Terrytown, Louisiana. One man was yelling as another was trying to apologize. The man who was yelling shot the other man more than once.
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.
Family members at the scene identified the victim as Joe McKnight, just 28 years old.
McKnight was born and raised in Louisiana, attended USC, and was drafted by the Jets in 2010. McKnight holds the record for the longest play in New York Jets history, a 107-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against the Ravens on October 2, 2011.
