Will Smith shot dead in New Orleans…wife injured

Will Smith, the former New Orleans Saints defensive end, was killed in a late-night shooting on Saturday (April 9) in the Lower Garden District, according to two law enforcement sources and a Saints source with direct knowledge of the incident.

According to reports, the former NFL star was driving east on Sophie Wright Place when his Mercedes G63 SUV was struck from behind by a Hummer H2. That collision caused the Mercedes to strike the rear of a Chevrolet Impala which was traveling with Smith.

The Pro Bowler and the driver of the Hummer apparently exchanged words. The driver of the Hummer then produced a handgun and shot Smith multiple times. Smith’s wife, Racquel Smith, was shot twice in the right leg.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was taken to University Medical Center for treatment.The 30-year-old driver of the Hummer who has not been identified is in custody. He was being interviewed by police early Sunday, and officers had recovered the gun used in the deadly shooting.

Smith leaves behind two sons and a daughter.
