According to TMZ Sports, 54-year-old Ronald Gasser — a white male — has not been charged yet with the shooting death of former National Football League player Joe McKnight. The former New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs player was shot and killed in a road rage incident on Thursday.

Gasser has been released on Friday morning, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Department. He was released “sometime overnight” after being questioned.

The incident happened at approx. 2:43 pm in Terrytown, which is a suburb of New Orleans. The 28-year-0ld was outside of his car when he was shot.

Witnesses say he was apologizing to Gasser when he was shot. The Sheriff Department believes he shot McKnight. TMZ Sports says, “[there are] questions about the circumstances surrounding what led up to it.”

This is an ongoing investigation and things can always change. The case could also go to a grand jury or a district attorney to see if they think charges should be filed.

McKnight is the second former NFL player who was shot and killed in and around New Orleans. In April, former New Orleans Saints player Will Smith was shot and killed on a possible road-range incident.
