An apparent road range incident in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, ended with the shooting death of former NFL player Joe McKnight.
The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office tells HipHollywood that around 2:43 p.m., the local 911 center received a call saying a person was shot near the intersection of Holmes Boulevard and Behrman Highway in Terrytown.
Upon arrival, officials confirmed that the victim, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds, was 28-year-old McKnight.
We are told that deputies performed CPR as they waited for the arrival of EMS. Unfortunately, McKnight, who was driving an Audi SUV, didn’t make it and was pronounced dead on the scene.
According to the sheriff’s department, the suspect, identified as 54-year-old Ronald Gasser, remained on the scene after the shooting and is currently being questioned by Homicide detectives.
According to reports, McKnight and Gasser were arguing when the suspect pulled out a gun and fired. Apparently, Gasser stood over McKnight’s body and said, “I told you not to f*ck with me.” That’s when he allegedly shot again.
Officials have also confirmed to HipHollywood that, during the time of the incident, McKnight did not have a weapon on him.
McKnight played college football at USC before being drafted by the NY Jets in the fourth round in 2010. The former running back also played for the Kansas City Chiefs before transitioning into the Canadian Football League.
The Jets responded to McKnight’s tragic death via Twitter, writing: “Rest in peace, Joe McKnight. Our thoughts and condolences are with his loved ones.”
The Chiefs also spoke on Twitter, posting: “Our thoughts and prayers are with Joe McKnight and his family. This is a heartbreaking loss.”
