A Louisiana jury on Friday convicted a man who was accused of fatally shooting former National Football League player Joe McKnight in an act of extreme road rage.
Jurors began deliberations Friday afternoon in the case of the 56-year-old Gasser, which involved six days of testimony from state witnesses.
Gasser was originally arrested in the December 2016 shooting that his attorneys called a road-rage incident gone bad.
Prosecutors told jurors Friday that the evidence shows Gasser angrily pursued McKnight and shot him from inside his own vehicle. The confrontation ended at an intersection, where McKnight exited his auto, approached Gasser's passenger window and was shot.
McKnight, driving his stepfather's Audi Q7, cut off Gasser, who gave chase, Normand said. He faces up to 40 years in prison for the manslaughter conviction.
A grand jury later returned a second-degree murder indictment against Gasser. "Gasser said, 'I'm not going to let it go.' If either of them had let it go, we wouldn't be here today".
Gasser did not seek a confrontation at the traffic light where McKnight exited his own vehicle and walked up to Gasser's passenger window.
Louisiana's self-defense laws demand police "get it right", Normand said at the time.
Gasser, who pleaded not guilty, told detectives in three separate statements that McKnight made an aggressive movement, a lunge, with his head, hands and upper torso coming into the vehicle.
Prosecutors told jurors Friday that the evidence shows Gasser angrily pursued McKnight and shot him from inside his own auto.
McKnight was considered the No. 1 running back recruit in the country when he came out of John Curtis Christian School in Louisiana in 2006. He racked up 2,213 yards and 13 touchdowns and caught 66 passes for 542 yards and two scores in three seasons.
But authorities didn't indict Gasser until some weeks after the shooting.
