Relative says police believe fellow victim shot McNair

July 06, 2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A relative of the woman found shot to death with Steve McNair says Nashville police told him she recently purchased a gun.

Farzin Abdi is Sahel Kazemi's nephew, but the two were raised together like brother and sister. Abdi says he does not believe Kazemi would have killed the former Tennessee Titans quarterback and herself.

The two were found dead on Saturday in a condominium owned by McNair.

Abdi says police told him they are almost sure the 20-year-old Kazemi was the shooter, but he says she had no motive.

Nashville police didn't immediately have a reaction to Abdi's comments.

Abdi says Kazemi believed McNair was divorcing his wife and she was preparing to sell her furniture to move in with him.
