According to Minden Police, rumors that L’Jarius “J.J.” Sneed was shot today are grossly exaggerated.
“He was not shot; his vehicle was shot,” said Det. Lt. Keith King Jr. “He was not even in the vehicle, but everybody knows it was his.”
King said Sneed, a cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs, posted a picture of his new black Ford Bronco on social media a few days ago.
“It had temporary tags,” King said, referring to the vehicle in the shooting. “Everybody knows it’s his.”
The shooting occurred around 11:30 a.m. Friday on East Street. King said the vehicle was in motion at the time. No one was injured.
The detective said the Bronco was shot multiple times with a large gun. Police discovered bullet casings at the scene. There are no suspects at this time.
“We are hearing several different stories,” King said. “This is like a thousand-piece puzzle. We are trying to put the pieces together now.
“The windows were tinted, but we are working on the conclusion that somebody thought they were shooting at J.J.,” he continued. “But the question is, who wants to kill J.J.?”
Police do not feel the shooting was connected to the stabbing death of Sneed’s brother back in December.
Sneed played football at Minden High School and Louisiana Tech University before he went to the Chiefs.
