We are saddened and shocked to hear the news of Steve McNair's passing today. He was one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans. He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family as they deal with his untimely passing.”

Police have officially ruled Steve McNair’s death as a homicide. They have also publicly identified the other deceased at the crime scene as Saleh Kazemi, a woman whom McNair had apparently been dating for several months. The police have yet to rule the cause of death for the second victim. They have not yet however ruled out the possibility of a murder-suicide.

With four gunshot wounds to his head and chest, former NFL quarterback Steven McNair was definitely the victim of a murder, but they stopped short of calling the incident a murder-suicide, in spite of the fact his girlfriend was found at his feet dead from a single gunshot wound.

Dead also is Saleh Kazemi, a 20-year-old waitress McNair met at Dave & Buster's restaurant in Nashville.
