Police have alleged that Will was shot and killed, and Racquel wounded in her legs, by 28-year-old Cardell Hayes following a fender-bender crash Saturday, April 9, that triggered some kind of altercation between the men.

Hayes was arrested soon after the shooting and charged with second-degree murder. His lawyer, John Fuller, has said, however, that he had a "strong suspicion" Will may have been "under the influence of some kind of mind-altering substance" that night.
"It would be safe to say that not only did my client feel threatened but citizens that were out there on that block felt threatened as well," Fuller said.
A fully loaded 9mm pistol was recovered from Will's vehicle, police said, but Smith family attorney Peter Thomson has said that "at no time during this event" did Will "ever brandish or carry" the gun, and that he had a state license to carry it concealed.
Thomson also dismissed the implication that Will may have been intoxicated that night or that the violence was precipitated by an earlier hit-and-run involving the Smiths and Hayes.
Thomson alleged that Hayes showed "no remorse" while firing on the couple.
Hayes is held on a $1 million bond and will next appear in court, for a preliminary hearing, on April 28.
