Chiefs cornerback L'Jarius Sneed was not inside a car he owns when it was shot up in Louisiana sometime Friday, TMZ Sports reports.

Sneed is in Minden, Louisiana, where he played high school football, and he showed up on scene to check out his bullet-ridden Ford Bronco.

Sneed and others were questioned at the scene by officers.

Two of the cornerback’s friends were in the vehicle at the time, but no one was injured.

The shooting is believed to be random, per TMZ, and police have made no arrests.

“A random and unnecessary act of violence occurred while Mr. Sneed was visiting his hometown,” Saffarah Lawson, Sneed’s agent, said in a statement. “No one was injured, but gunshots damaged his vehicle. He was briefly questioned and released without incident. There is a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.”

A Chiefs’ spokesman said the team is aware of the incident and gathering information.

Sneed, a fourth-round choice of the Chiefs in 2020, has started 21 games and made five interceptions, three sacks and 117 tackles.

    released? was he detained for some reason?
    ==============================================
    “Released” from the scene. As in, if the cops tell you not to go anywhere, you wait to talk to them. After talking to the police, they will “release” you from the scene.

    The police cannot require anyone to remain at the scene just to talk with them. There is no requirement to talk with or give any information to the police. If someone has to be “released” it means that they were detained, which means that Miranda rights apply.

  3. This is the same hometown where his brother was stabbed to death last year. I find “random” to be a difficult statement to believe.

  4. Per report:

    We’re told Sneed and others were DETAINED on the scene and questioned by officers, but ultimately, Sneed was not arrested and not charged with a crime … and was let go.

  5. My wifes home town and her brother is a cop there. Crime is very rampant in that area, terrible.

  6. If you live somewhere where cars being shot up is random it is time to move.

  7. Old Saying,….
    “Show Me Your Friends,… and I’ll Show You Your Future”

  8. Lots of ignorant reply’s. Some poverty stricken parts of the US are basically like 3rd world countries. You don’t blame a victim in a 3rd world country, it just is what it is.

  9. Guessing the Saints wont make a donation since it doesn’t fit the narrative…. Chicago, Seattle everywhere that crime runs wild, but something awful happens in Buffalo, “THAT’s the problem”…
