NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A source close to the defense says witnesses have been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury tomorrow, April 21, in the Will Smith murder case. That means that an indictment could come soon for Cardell Hayes, Smith's accused killer.
A New Orleans Police Department in the Will Smith murder investigation reveals new details about the case. The copy of the report was obtained by Fox 8 this morning.
The report says when officers arrived on the scene at Sophie B. Wright and Felicity they found a .45 caliber handgun, with the magazine removed, on the hood of an orange Hummer.
They secured the firearm and discovered a live round still in the chamber.
The hummer and gun, reportedly, belonged to Cardell Hayes, the man accused of killing Smith.
Hayes was arrested and booked with second degree murder.
Hayes' attorney, John Fuller told Fox 8 Hayes was not the aggressor.
The Smith family attorney says Hayes intentionally killed Will Smith and shot his wife, Racquel.
