NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New surveillance video from the night Saints’ defensive end Will Smith was shot and killed appears to show Smith’s vehicle bumping a vehicle possibly driven by the man accused of shooting him.
The video was posted by local television stations WVUE and WDSU. The stations identified it as surveillance video from businesses along the route where Smith was driving in the minutes leading up to the deadly shooting.
Police have said Smith was driving a Mercedes SUV and that Cardell Hayes, the accused shooter, was driving in a Hummer.
Police said Hayes’ vehicle rear-ended Smith’s, they exchanged words and then Hayes shot Smith and his wife.
The surveillance video shows a Mercedes SUV bumping a Hummer from behind. As the Hummer pulls to the side, the Mercedes goes around it and drives off.
