Late last night, former New Orleans Saints team captain Will Smith was shot dead in the Garden District in New Orleans.

Investigators say the attack appears to be connected to a road rage incident, and not a premeditated situation. Smith's wife was also in the vehicle, and was shot twice. Smith was pronounced dead at the scene.

Smith was a first round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints who spent his entire 10 year career in Nola. He was a starter in the Saints Super Bowl victory, and is top 5 in career sacks for the organization.

Smith was 34.
