Police Identify Man Who Sold Gun in McNair Shooting

Posted By on Fri, Jul 17, 2009 at 1:15 PM

From ESPN:
Federal agents have arrested a convicted murderer for allegedly providing the gun later used to kill ex-NFL quarterback Steve McNair. Adrian J. Gilliam Jr. was arrested by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. A criminal complaint unsealed Friday in Nashville says that Gilliam -- who was convicted of murder and attempted armed robbery in 1993 in Florida -- admitted he sold the gun to the woman who later shot McNair.
A quick search shows that Gilliam was arrested by Metro PD on June 30th for driving with a suspended license. The incident occurred only three days before the ATF says he sold a loaded .9 MM to Sahel Kazemi, McNair's killer, whom Gilliam had met as a prospective buyer of the car she was trying to sell. Born in 1975, it's possible that Gilliam was a minor when convicted of the murder and attempted robbery charges. That would explain why the Florida Department of Corrections lists no record of his incarceration, nor does Nexis have any clue as to where the crime was committed, or the circumstances surrounding it. U.S. Attorney Ed Yarborough is announcing these charges as we write. More info to come.
