Former Saints Player Pierre Thomas Says He Witnessed Will Smith’s Death
Pierre Thomas was spotted out to dinner with his former Saints teammate Will Smith before the athlete was gunned down in New Orleans on Saturday (April 9) night, and Thomas revealed on Instagram that he witnessed Smith’s death.
In a message posted to his page on Tuesday (April 12) night, Thomas wrote, “The last few days has been a whirlwind and I am still trying to wrap my head around this whole thing. I flew out of New Orleans last night and back to Chicago because I couldn’t think straight… I witnessed a close friend, teammate and a man that I thought of as one of my big brothers in the NFL shot to death OVER A F***ING FENDER BENDER!!!!” He added, “I just don’t get it… these images that I have in my head will never leave me and I understand that and will have to live with it.”
Cardell Hayes, the man accused of shooting and killing Smith, is due in court on April 28 for a preliminary hearing.
