(WFLX) - It's official, authorities calling the death of former NFL quarterback Steve McNair a murder suicide.

Nashville police say McNair's mistress murdered him, and he probably didn't even know what happened. Police say the Titans quarterback was sleeping on the couch in his condo when 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi shot him point-blank in the side of the head, then shot him three more times. She then turned the gun on herself.

A memorial will be held Thursday at the stadium where he once played. McNair's friends, ex-teammates,and former coaches will speak.

McNair's wife, Mechelle, has not spoken publicly since he was found dead.
