Former Saints player Will Smith was shot to death in an apparent road rage encounter in New Orleans late Saturday.

The 34-year-old whose legacy with the Louisiana football team included a 2009 Super Bowl win, was killed following a three-car crash that erupted in gunfire, the New Orleans coroner confirmed.

The man behind the wheel of a Hummer H2 “exchanged words” with Smith after a fender-bender, when the driver struck the defensive end’s Mercedes Benz SUV from behind, and brandished a handgun, police said.

The 30-year-old suspect then opened fire and shot Smith multiple times as stepped out of the vehicle. The shooter, who was not immediately identified, stayed at the crime scene until police arrived and was arrested.
