The shooter was known to the victims, police said in a statement. He stayed on the scene until police arrived, and was arrested shortly afterward.


Smith, a native of Queens, New York, was a first-round draft pick for the Saints in 2004. As defensive end for the team’s Super Bowl victory in 2009, he achieved a career high of 13 sacks. A knee injury in 2013 put him on the disabled list, and he was signed to the New England Patriots in 2014 but never made the regular roster.

Smith leaves behind his wife and his three children.
