Will Smith's father says he forgives shooter
NEW ORLEANS - The father of former New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith says he forgives the man accused of shooting his son to death.
Will Smith Sr. also told WTVD in Durham, North Carolina, he isn't interested in a trial for 28-year-old Cardell Hayes, who is charged with second-degree murder. The elder Smith says the Lord will do to him what he's going to do, adding that nothing that happens in the court system will bring his son back.
When reached by The Associated Press on Wednesday, Smith says he was advised by an attorney to make no additional comments.
Police say the shooting happened Saturday night. Attorneys for Hayes and Smith have given differing accounts of what led up to the confrontation.
