Ex-NFL running back Joe McKnight was murdered in a road rage shooting in New Orleans ... law enforcement tells TMZ Sports.

The incident occurred at 2:43 PM. Family members identified the 28-year-old at the scene.

A witness told NOLA.com ... she saw McKnight trying to apologize to another man after some sort of traffic incident.

The witness says the man then pulled out a gun and shot McKnight -- and while standing over him screamed, "I told you not to f*** with me" ... then fired another shot into his body.

McKnight was a high school phenom -- considered the best running back in the country.

He played college ball at USC. He was drafted by the NY Jets in 2010

tragic and senseless.

met him a few times and just seemed like an awesome guy. he was a person that was embraced by his teammates at a level and pace that is rare to see, which speaks well to him as a person. The really sad part is that he was pondering staying in Regina for the offseason because he liked the relaxed atmosphere and then something like this happens when he heads south. The world is so Fd.

Another typical tragic loss to useless US gun culture. New Orleans area is such a sketchy place. Second former player to die the same way this year.

On a side note the lovely city of Chicago hit 700 murders for the year. Holy Sh!t. What they need is everyone to be armed right Trump. FARCE!!!
Rescue the sunken 'Good Ship Argonaut' and restore her in 2017, PLEASE!!!!

Stay in Canada, spend in Canada!!!!!
