(Newser) – Steve McNair's girlfriend bought a gun on Thursday, less than 2 days before she and the retired NFL quarterback were shot to death with the weapon, Nashville police say. A spokesman refused to say who sold Sahel Kazemi the gun but did say it fired five shots, the Tennessean reports. Police have stopped short of calling the crime a murder-suicide. "It may well be that we'll never know exactly why this happened," said the spokesman.
