Former NFL running back Joe McKnight was fatally shot during an apparent road-rage incident while standing beside a man's vehicle at a suburban New Orleans intersection, authorities said Friday. When the victim called the phone number, an individual, later identified as Ronald Gasser told the victim he was the one driving the red pick up truck.
But at a press conference Friday, Sheriff Newell Normand insisted, "Mr. Gasser did not stand over Mr. McKnight and fire shots into him", adding that Gasser was in his vehicle when he opened fire.
Following the McKnight shooting, Gasser was interviewed by JPSO authorities and later nreleased although the investigation is on-going. Glaser allegedly fired multiple shots and McKnight was pronounced dead at the scene.
McKnight's vehicle and one driven by Ronald Gasser, 54, were found side by side at the intersection, Sheriff Newell Normand said.
Normand has said it will be up to the District Attorney's Office to file charges against Gasser.
Normand, who dispelled rumors that Gasser had any connection to law enforcement, said authorities are still investigating whether he had a license to carry a weapon. He said he was also shocked to hear the news Thursday evening."It's just a tragic loss", he said.
A verbal altercation began between the driver who called the number and Gasser.
McKnight, who police say was unarmed on Thursday, was a standout at USC before he was selected by the New York Jets in the 2010 NFL Draft.
