    Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair and another person were killed in a shooting in Nashville, Tennessee, authorities said Saturday.

    Police said they found McNair and a woman shot to death in a Nashville residence Saturday after receiving a phone call about an injured person. The identity of the woman was not immediately released.

    A law enforcement source close to the investigation said the woman is McNair’s girlfriend and that the residence is her condominium in downtown Nashville.

    Witnesses said he was a frequent visitor there.

    Authorities were questioning people who were near the home, but they said no one was in custody.

    They could not provide details as to the circumstances of the shooting.

    McNair played 13 seasons in the NFL, spending most of his tenure with the Tennessee Titans.  He retired in April 2008.

    He was only 36.
