The attorney for the man accused of fatally shooting former New Orleans Saints star Will Smith says his client will plead not guilty.
Police say the shooting took place Saturday night after Smith was rear-ended by a man driving an orange Hummer. The man, identified as Cardell Hayes, allegedly opened fire, killing Smith and injuring Smith's wife, according to police.
Police called the incident the result of road rage and haven't wavered on that, despite details that could suggest ulterior motives.
