Last night, a tragic scene unfolded in New Orleans' Garden District as former New Orleans Saint, and Super Bowl Champion Will Smith, was murdered in the street.

So far, most of the stories surrounding the incident point to the altercation being a road-rage incident, and an arrest has already been made. The accused murderer has been identified as 28-year-old Cardell Hayes. He is being charged with second degree murder.

Alex Richerand lives near the scene of the crime, and had stepped outside to see what was unfolding. In his interview, he states that as soon as he heard the gunshots, he ran back inside to call 911.
