 Sheriff: McKnight shooting was road rage; defends case (Yahoo Sports)

The shooting death of an ex-NFL player in a New Orleans suburb was a ”road rage” incident that began on a nearby bridge, a sheriff said Friday, as he urged against a rush to judgment and defended his handling of the case. Joe McKnight was shot Thursday afternoon in Terrytown, across the Mississippi River from New Orleans. Authorities identified 54-year-old Ronald Gasser, who stayed at the scene, as the shooter and released him overnight, sparking criticism.
