Gasser faces a maximum of 40 years in prison.
Matt Goetz, Gasser's attorney, said McKnight chose to pursue his client.
The two reportedly began aggressively weaving through traffic before McKnight was followed off an exit by Gasser.
Prosecutors told jurors Friday that the evidence shows Gasser angrily pursued McKnight and shot him from inside his own auto.
The deadly confrontation between Gasser and McKnight, 28, occurred at a traffic intersection in the New Orleans suburb of Terrytown, where the two men stopped their vehicles after shouting vulgarities at each other and driving erratically for about 5 miles.
Gasser never disputed that he shot McKnight on December 1, 2016.
Physical evidence at the crime scene indicated that Gasser shot McKnight three times from his driver's seat as McKnight rested his left hand on Gasser's passenger-side window.
