Police Arrest Man Who Sold the Gun that Killed Steve McNair

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

In a story that I am really glad to see, the man who sold the gun to Sahel Kazemi that she used to kill Steve McNair has been arrested.  Turns out he is an ex-con that was convicted in Florida in 1993 of three counts of armed robbery and second degree murder.  Good thing he was back on the streets.

The story goes on to say that Kazemi bought the gun for $100 while also trying to sell the man her Kia.  The bizarreness continues on..

[UPDATE]-  The gun offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000. Gilliam has a 3 p.m. arraignment today before Judge Clifton Knowles.

According to a court filing in relation to Gilliam's gun charge, the gun originated at Household Pawn on Charlotte Avenue and went through another owner before Gilliam bought it for $100 about a year ago. It said Gilliam admitted to agents he sold the gun to Kazemi, identifying her through a photograph.
