The police in Nashville, Tenn., on Sunday ruled the shooting death of the
former N.F.L. quarterback Steve McNair a homicide but did not reach a
conclusion about the death of a woman who was found with him.
A police spokesman, Don Aaron, also told The Associated Press that McNair,
36, and the woman, Sahel Kazemi, 20, had been in a dating relationship for
past several months. McNair was married and had four sons.
McNair and Kazemi were found dead Saturday afternoon in a condominium in
downtown Nashville. McNair had four gunshot wounds, including two to the
head. Kazemi was found with a single gunshot wound to the head, Aaron told
The Associated Press on Sunday.
The police said they needed to conduct more interviews with friends of
Kazemi and McNair before they ruled whether her death was a suicide, Aaron
said. Authorities have stopped short of saying the deaths were a
murder-suicide committed by Kazemi.
Asked Sunday if the deaths could have been caused by a lovers quarrel,
Aaron replied, Thats a very important part of the investigation as we work
to ultimately classify Miss Kazemis death.
