A man who shot and killed former National Football League running back Joe McKnight during a traffic dispute was convicted Friday of manslaughter.
The jury deliberated for over seven hours on Friday after hearing six days of testimony during the trial, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
It's insane to think that it's been over a year since Joe McKnight was shot and killed at age 28 during an "apparent road rage" incident in Terrytown, LA. "Mr Gasser thought that Mr McKnight had thrown the gauntlet down", Shute told jurors, later adding: "He followed him off the exit". Defense attorneys had claimed Gasser feared for his life when he fired from his driver's seat at McKnight, who was standing at his open passenger-side window. Prosecutors said an autopsy disproved Gasser's claim that McKnight lunged at him, while acknowledging the 28 year old McKnight was driving dangerously. He could face upto 40 years in prison. "We're obviously disappointed with the verdict", he told The New Orleans Advocate as he left the courthouse.
