A witness, who declined to give her name, said she was leaving a store in the area when she saw a man at the intersection yelling at another man, who was trying to apologize. The man who was yelling shot the other man more than once, she said.
She said the shooter shot the man, stood over him and said "I told you don't you **** with me." Then he fired again, she said.

I want this woman in jail. Investigators say they retrieved the shell casings from inside Ronald Gasser's car, showing that he fired from inside his vehicle. They also say McKnight was in close proximity to the vehicle when he was shot.

Louisiana also has a "Kill The Carjacker" law in place, an extension of the Stand Your Ground law, which makes it legal to defend yourself from inside your vehicle.

Much more to this story than what was originally reported, but the female "witness" needs to be charged and jailed.

Anybody who blatantly lies needs to be punished, but the shooter was in fear that the unarmed McKnight was going to carjack his much less expensive car after abandoning his much more expensive car? Could be possible, but unlikely IMO.

We shall see.

Doesn't mean he thought he was going to be carjacked. It means he thought he was in danger of being killed, and defended himself.

Lots more to the story. Too bad McKnight isn't around to tell his version, and the "witness" lied through her teeth.

That's what gets me about those laws:

Get out of your car unarmed and get in a yelling match, and you can legally be shot dead in your tracks with 3 shots from the shooter's driver's seat.

Most places they are reactions to the issue of car jackings. SLC did the same thing when the gangs started doing a lot of car jackings. Beating people, killing people, etc, just for a car.

As to the bolded, stay in your car and call 911. Road rage is a stupid way to die.

Oh, believe me that's the way I always react. I am just speaking about the "legalese" part of the law.

Regardless of what happened, it's still a damned shame. Even if McKnight was figuratively getting in the guy's face, IMO he didn't deserve to get shot dead unless he was brandishing a weapon or physically trying to access the shooter's car which (could have happened).

We shall see what happens.

I prefer to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. Lock and load baby.
