Will Smith was always a gracious player to me as a writer and as a fan. He was killed tragically tonight while sitting in his SUV in a lovely Lower Garden District neighborhood. Neighbors heard shouting and then gunfire. Will Smith’s wife, Rocky, was also wounded in the leg.  WDW offers prayers up for the Smith family and especially Rocky who will have so much to forget and remember these days as well as care for their three great kids.

Pierre Thomas, who was in town for a charity event, traveled to the scene and left distraught.  WDW sends sincere prayers to the Smith family and especially to Rocky who will have to forget and remember so much these next days.
