NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Nashville are confirming that
ex-NFL star Steve McNair's 20-year-old girlfriend killed him before
turning the gun on herself.
They say they may never know what was going through Sahel
Kazemi's mind when she shot McNair in his condominium, but they say
it's clear it was a murder-suicide.
Police earlier had labeled McNair's death a homicide, but
awaited further tests and investigation before saying for sure what
They believe he was asleep on a sofa when Kazemi shot him in the
head. She then apparently shot him twice in the chest before
shooting him again in the head and then shooting herself.
McNair, a quarterback for the Tennessee Titans most of his
career, was shot at a condo he rented with another man. The gun was
found underneath Kazemi.
