L’Jarius Sneed’s car was shot multiple times in while he was visiting his hometown, but police officers noted that he was not inside the car at the time and he is not being accused of any wrongdoing.
The Minden Police Department told TMZ Sports the gunfire went down Friday afternoon in Minden, where Sneed played high school football.
“According to a department spokesperson, Sneed’s Ford Bronco — which the 25-year-old football player was not an occupant in at the time — was hit by bullets … and Sneed later showed up on the scene to check things out.
We’re told Sneed and others were detained on the scene and questioned by officers, but ultimately, Sneed was not arrested and not charged with a crime … and was let go.
Sources close to Sneed say two of his friends were driving the vehicle at the time … and believe the shooting was random.”
Sneed’s agent would later release a statement:
Back in December, Sneed’s brother was fatally stabbed in Minden. Police arrested one woman on suspicion of his death. Angela Washington was charged with one count of second degree homicide.
In his two seasons with the team, he’s started 21 games and logged five interceptions, three sacks and 117 combined tackles.
