Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed was reportedly involved in an incident during a recent visit to his hometown of Minden, La., according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.

Sneed’s agent Safarrah Lawson issued a statement to NFL Network Friday night detailing a “random and unnecessary act of violence” that occurred while he was in Minden. According to Lawson, the incident resulted in gunfire damaging a car belonging to Sneed, 25. He was subsequently released by the Minden Police Department after questioning.

“No one was injured, but gunshots damaged his vehicle,” Lawson said, per Garafolo. “He was briefly questioned and released without incident. There is a $5,000.00 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the act.”
