Footballer Roughrider Joe McKnight was shot and killed in the street


McKnight was a college football star at the University of Southern California and was drafted into the NFL in 2010. In 2016 he came north to the CFL, playing first for the Edmonton Eskimos and then the Saskatchewan Roughriders. A former top overall prospect in his high school class, McKnight is being remembered for his speed and agility on the field. McKnight is the second CFL player and third professional football player to be shot to death this year. A witness told the media that she saw a man yelling at McKnight, who was trying to apologize, before firing multiple shots that hit McKnight. Per the report, the man firing the gun then stood over McKnight and said “I told you don’t you f— with me.”
