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.

McNair was shot to death July 4 at his condo by his 20-year-old mistress Sahel Kazemi, who then turned the gun on herself.

The complaint, signed by ATF agent Mickey French, charges Gilliam with illegally possessing a firearm, which he is barred from doing as a felon.

    Who cares? He was having an affair.

    I sure hate that Steve tarnished his good deeds by having a mistress. Why don't people take their vows seriously anymore?
