Cops Say A Loaded Gun Was Found Inside Will Smith’s Mercedes
Three days later and the NFL community is still reeling from the shocking news that former New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith was murdered in cold blood as he sat in his car after a fender bender accident.
There was a witness at the scene right after it happened that stated on camera Will Smith told his killer that he had a gun. No gun was found initially on Smith until Tuesday, when they got a search warrant to check his car.
TMZ has the details:
“The New Orleans PD says a fully loaded 9mm handgun was recovered from Will Smith‘s car after he was fatally shot.
Cops made the announcement Tuesday afternoon — after finally executing a search warrant that allowed them to search Smith’s Mercedes.
The discovery will undoubtedly help the defense — which is claiming Cardell Hayes felt threatened by Smith at the time of the shooting.
Cops say they’re still investigating and interviewing witnesses — including Smith’s wife and the 2 additional passengers in Smith’s car.”
