    Published: July 17, 2009

    WASHINGTON (AP)—The Associated Press has learned that federal agents have a convicted felon under arrest for providing the gun later used to kill ex-NFL quarterback Steve McNair.

    Two law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, say the suspect has been arrested by agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

    Federal prosecutors in Nashville plan to announce the charges at a press conference later Friday.

    McNair was shot to death on July 4 at his condo by his 20-year-old mistress Sahel Kazemi, who then turned the gun on herself. Police have said Kazemi bought the gun in a private sale from a person they haven’t identified.

    Re: Fed's make arrest in McNair case

    What was it of the Fed's that made the arrest?

    Because otherwise it would be Feds, right?

    I could be way off base here, but is it unusual for AP to lead with itself? 'The AP has learned....'? Don't they just typically get to the story, ie, 'Federal agents have a convicted felon under arrest...'?

    Not when the story is an AP exclusive and this one appears to be an exclusive.

    Adrian Gilliam didn't pull the trigger but he violated a section of the federal code that says it is a felony for any person convicted of a felony to possess a firearm that has moved in interstate commerce. Very few guns are manufactured in Tennessee, so practically every gun in Tennessee has moved as part of interstate commerce.
    Looks like he's going to do time for someone else's misdeed.

    Or he'll do time for his own misdeed for possessing a firearm that has moved in interstate commerce.

    Is it right to call her his "mistress"?

    That's a pretty judgmental term.

    She's nobody's mister.

    should they just write, the 20-year-old girl, who happened to be in his condo
    before shooting herself?

    edit: hotel room to condo

    Concubine. Mistress. Does it really make a difference?
