What Ohio State's Will Smith Was Doing Before He Was Murdered On Saturday

Former Ohio State and New Orleans Saints' defensive end Will Smith was murdered Saturday night in a road-rage incident. 

Smith, 34, was in the car with his wife when he was rear-ended in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. An argument ensued between Smith and the driver of the other car. The driver of the other car, a Hummer, pulled out a handgun and shot Smith multiple times, killing him. Smith's wife was also shot twice in the leg; she was taken to the hospital. 

The former Buckeye and his wife were apparently enjoying a festival in the French Quarter earlier in the day. 

Smith leaves behind his wife and three children.

Rest in peace, Will.
