According to police, the 36-year-old N.F.L. player 's body was found on the sofa in his living room with two gunshot wounds to the chest and two to the head. The female, who was also found dead at the scene has been identified as 20-year-old, Sahel Kazemi. She was killed by a single gunshot wound to the head, the pistol found near her body on the floor.
Reports say a friend who co-rents the apartment with McNair found the bodies on Saturday.
Officials also confirmed on Sunday that Mcnair and Kazemi had been dating over the past several months. Just two days ago Nashville police arrested Kazemi on a DUI charge and McNair, who was in the front seat at the time, bailed her out.
McNair's wife and mother of his four sons, Michelle, has not spoken publicly about the shooting. There are no records indicating any official separation or divorce.
Police would only say Mrs. McNair is obviously very distraught at what has taken place, and of course so are fans.
