NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair(notes) has been shot and killed.

Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron confirmed that police were called to a residence and found McNair and a woman shot to death inside. Aaron said authorities don’t yet know the circumstances of the shooting.

“I don’t have any answers for you now as to what’s happened, who’s responsible,” he said.

Aaron said police have tentatively identified the woman but did not release her name.

McNair played 13 seasons in the NFL and led the Titans within a yard of forcing overtime in the 2000 Super Bowl. The former third overall draft pick also played for the Baltimore Ravens before retiring after the 2007 season.

“He was one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans,” Titans owner Bud Adams said in a statement. “He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl.”

Holy Schnikies! What is this world coming to? Mad

Wow!! I wasn't sure if he was actually retired or was still a back up for the Ravens. Definitely one of the better off field players i.e. fan friendly.

My first reaction was something's up with NFL players getting shot. Until the details came out - murder/suicide? On the radio this morning, they openly called the 20 year-old woman with him (who was also shot) his girlfriend, despite his being married with four kids.

I feel for his family, and am sorry for the loss of Air McNair.
