Ronald Gasser, the man authorities say shot and killed former NFL player Joe McKnight outside New Orleans Thursday, was released from custody overnight without being charged, Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office authorities said this morning.
Gasser, 54, has not been formally charged, said JPSO spokesman Col. John Fortunato. Investigators are consulting with the district attorney's office on the decision whether to formally charge Gasser, Fortunato said.
Police say they are continuing to investigate the death.
But social media accounts say that a witness saw Gasser stand ABOVE Joe, and shoot him dead while uttering something to do with "Donald Trump."
