In case you missed it, the former NFL player from the Saints, Will Smith, was shot and killed this past week during a road rage incident and his wife shot in the leg.
"Someone hit him, the person failed to pull over,"
"My client trailed behind this person in an effort to get this license plate number. My client also called 911."
They found Smith's body "in the middle of the street, partially inside of his vehicle, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the body,"
the police report said.
"He died at the scene."
Hayes was still there. That he didn't leave -- and, moreover, that he'd secured a witness who was heading out -- is telling, according to his lawyer.
"Now, tell me if that's the behavior that's consistent with someone who's an animal out here looking for blood,"
"His actions are totally consistent with someone that is complying with a police investigation."
Detectives also found a fully loaded 9-millimeter handgun inside Smith's vehicle on
Tuesday morning, police said. Investigators also found a fully loaded revolver inside Hayes' vehicle.
"No bullet casings were found inside either vehicle, and no ballistic evidence was recovered to show that either weapon was fired during the incident," police said.
