GRETNA, La. -- The moments after Ronald Gasser fatally shot Joe McKnight in December 2016 were frantic, with witnesses describing a scene where the Gasser pointed his gun at one other person who wanted to give CPR to McKnight as he lay dying on the ground.

GRETNA, La. -- Jurors heard Ronald Gasser tell Jefferson Parish detectives that he feared for his life when Joe McKnight got out of his SUV and leaned into Gasser’s passenger-side window at the end of a road-rage incident in Terrytown that began on the Crescent City Connection. Gasser made those comments in a videotape statement to investigators that prosecutors played during Gasser’s trial Monday. The interview Gasser’s second with police, was conducted a day after the Dec. 1, 2016, shooting.
NEW ORLEANS -- Did Ronald Gasser kill Joe McKnight in self-defense, or did he overreact to a road-rage incident when he shot the former NFL standout? That’s what a Jefferson Parish jury will have to decide after it is seated, a process that process begins today. It’s a case that will be tough for both sides to prove, said WWL-TV legal analyst Pauline Hardin.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
