Will Smith, Former Saints Player, Shot Dead At Scene Of Crash:
Will Smith and his wife, Racquel, were “having a blast” at a city festival mere hours before they were both shot, leaving the former New Orleans Saints defensive end dead and his wife hospitalized.
New Orleans Police Department spokesman Tyler Gamble was reluctant to use the term “road rage,” but a police statement says Smith and the driver of a Hummer SUV “exchanged words” before the Hummer’s driver shot Smith multiple times and shot Smith’s wife in the right leg.
Former New Orleans police officer Billy Ceravolo, who was at dinner with Will and Racquel Smith before the shooting, told CNN over the phone that Racquel Smith was on the mend, but he declined to answer further questions.

The New York Fox News poll is the third published recently that shows Trump poised to cross the 50% statewide threshold needed to capture all of New York’s statewide Republican delegates. Trump would need to win a majority of votes in all of the state’s 27 congressional districts to clinch New York’s full 95-delegate slate.
