    Man Who Killed Ex-NFL Player Joe McKnight Released: Sheriff

    A man who shot and killed a former New York Jets player in an apparent outbreak of road rage outside New Orleans Thursday afternoon has been released without charges, sheriff's deputies told NBC News.

    Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies said that they will consult with prosecutors and a grand jury could convene to consider charges, but that they had no reason to continue holding 54-year-old Ronald Gasser in the death of Joe McKnight.

    McKnight, 28, played for the Jets from 2010 to 2012 and was a star running back at the University of Southern California. Authorities said he got in an argument with Gasser on a highway in the suburb of Terrytown and was shot outside his vehicle.
