Felon indicted for selling gun in McNair murder

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The convicted murderer accused of selling the gun used to kill former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair has been indicted.

The federal grand jury on Wednesday charged Adrian J. Gilliam, Jr. with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Gilliam, of LaVergne, is accused of selling a loaded nine-millimeter pistol to McNair’s mistress, Sahel Kazemi, for $100 two days before McNair was shot.

Police said the 20-year-old waitress shot McNair at his downtown condo July 4 before turning the gun on herself.

Gilliam has been out of prison seven years since serving time in Florida for murder and attempted armed robbery.

He remains in federal custody Wednesday and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
