Former USC star, NFL Running Back Joe McKnight Killed in Shooting (Video)


Terrible, terrible news.

Former USC star & New York Jets RB Joe McKnight was shot and killed at age 28 on Thursday afternoon during an “apparent road rage” incident in Terrytown, LA.

He was just 28 years old.

According to, McKnight was in an argument at an intersection around 3pm:

“A witness, who declined to give her name, said she was leaving a store in the area when she saw a man at the intersection yelling at another man, who was trying to apologize. The man who was yelling shot the other man more than once, she said.

She said the shooter shot the man, stood over him and said “I told you don’t you f—- with me.” Then he fired again, she said.”

McKnight last played in the NFL in 2014.
