Former USC Trojans and New York Jets Running Back Joe McKnight was fatally shot on Thursday after an apparent road rage incident in New Orleans.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Norman said deputies received a call at approximately 2:43 p.m. about a shooting in Terrytown, Louisiana. McKnight suffered a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Normand.

Ronald Gasser, 54, told deputies that he shot McKnight, but he has not been arrested at this time. Both he and a half dozen witnesses have been taken to the sheriffs office for questioning.
