    Report: Former Saints defensive end Will Smith shot and killed
    Posted by Mike Florio on April 10, 2016, 2:01 AM EDT

    Staff photographer Michael DeMocker of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports via Twitter that former Saints defensive end Will Smith was shot and killed in New Orleans late Saturday night.

    DeMocker attributes to unidentified witnesses the news that Smith has died and his wife was wounded. One photo posted by DeMocker shows former Saints running back Pierre Thomas at the scene, “distraught” at the news that Smith was murdered.

    The most recent item on the Times-Picayune website reports that a man was killed and a woman was injured in a shooting, but the article does not as of this posting identify the victims.

    Twitter currently is buzzing with the news. Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, a New Orleans native who played college football at LSU, has acknowledged the news. Also, “RIP Will Smith” is trending.

    Smith posted on Instagram earlier Saturday a photo from the French Quarter Fest in New Orleans.

    A first-round pick in 2004, Smith played nine years for the Saints. He had a career-high 13 sacks in 2009, a season that culminated in the franchise’s only NFL championship.

    If the report from the Times-Picayune is accurate, we extend our condolences to Smith, his family, friends, teammates, and colleagues.

    UPDATE 2:05 a.m. ET: The online article posted by the New Orleans Times-Picayune now confirms that Will Smith was killed in the shooting, according to New Orleans

    Pretty close to where I live.... I'm assuming the defense will be that the confederate statues made him do it.

    Awful, awful scene.

    The former defensive end was driving in a Mercedes late Saturday through an upscale part of the city called the Lower Garden District when his vehicle was hit from behind by another vehicle, an orange Hummer H2, police said.

    That caused Smith’s vehicle to hit a grey Chevrolet Impala in front of him. Two acquaintances of Smith’s were in the Impala but not injured.

    At some point in the ensuing incident, Smith and Hayes — the driver of the Hummer — exchanged words, police said. That’s when police say Hayes pulled out a gun and shot Smith multiple times.

    Smith’s wife, who was traveling with him, was shot in the leg. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Police said Smith died at the scene.

    Just wait: "Your honor, the defendant is a "gentle giant" who plans to go to college and was on his way to church when the police stopped him for no reason, rammed his vehicle into the other cars, shot those people, and planted the gun on my client."

    This really bums me out. Always seemed like a good guy. Hope the shooter gets sentenced to Federal-Pound-Me-In-The-Ass-Prison.

    I guess the killer didn't make it to the Earth Wind and Fire concert in time.
