NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Nashville police say former NFL quarterback
Steve McNair was shot multiple times and that the 20-year-old woman found dead with him in a downtown condominium was shot once in the head. A pistol was found near her body.
Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron identified the woman as Sahel Kazemi, whom he called a "friend" of McNair's.
Autopsies were planned for Sunday.
Aaron says McNair's wife, Mechelle, is "very distraught" and that police do not believe she is involved.
McNair played 13 seasons before retiring in April 2008.
Aaron said earlier Saturday authorities were still investigating the shootings and that no suspects were in custody.
"I don't have any answers for you now as to what's happened, who's responsible," Aaron said.
"There are persons who were around the complex today, visitors, who have been taken to headquarters for questioning, just to see what they know, what they may have seen," he said.
Aaron said officers went to the scene after receiving a call about injured persons inside the condo.
"When police officers arrived in response to that call, they found two individuals who had been shot to death inside the residence," he said.
The condominium is one that McNair was known to frequent, but police spokeswoman Kristin Mumford said she didn't know if he was the owner.
WOW!!!.. Can't Believe it!
