Former NFL defensive lineman Will Smith killed in double shooting

Former NFL defensive lineman Will Smith was shot and killed in an apparent road rage incident in New Orleans late Saturday, authorities said.

New Orleans Coroner Jeffrey C. Rouse confirmed early Sunday the male victim in the double shooting was Smith, 34, according to WVUE-TV. Police said the shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. in the Lower Garden District at the intersection of Sophie Wright Place and Felicity Streets.

The alleged gunman, Cardell Hayes, 28, was charged with second-degree murder on Sunday. Online court records show Hayes pleaded guilty in 2014 to one count each of possessing an illegal weapon and possessing drug paraphernalia.

Hayes had also once sued city police after they shot and killed his father on Dec. 26, 2005. Hayes and the city settled the federal lawsuit in September 2011, while attorneys were preparing for trial in the case. Court papers don't describe the settlement.
