NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair is dead.

News 2 has confirmed the former Titans star was found shot to death at an apartment complex in north Nashville.

A second person was also found dead.

That person's identity was not immediately known.

No further details were released.

McNair played 13 seasons in the NFL before retiring in April 2008.

He played college football at Alcorn State and was drafted by the Houston Oilers, third overall, in the 1995 NFL Draft.

McNair played 11 seasons with the Titans franchise, leading the team to the Super Bowl in 1999.

He played his final two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.

McNair was selected to the Pro Bowl three times and was the co-MVP of the league in 2003, sharing the award with Peyton Manning.

He was 36 years old.

It's true. These are legit (local) sites. It's not like it's The Onion or something.

I wonder if he resided in a home or if he lived in an apartment. If he did not live in an apartment I wonder why he was found in one--- Sad, sad story......
