NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A public memorial and viewings are scheduled later this week for slain former NFL quarterback Steve McNair.
The public will have a couple of opportunities to attend viewings in Nashville on Thursday and a memorial will be held later that evening at Mount Zion Baptist Church.
A second memorial service will be held Saturday at Reed Green Coliseum in in Hattiesburg, Miss., on the campus of the University of Southern Mississippi. McNair, 36, was from Mount Olive, a small town nearby.
Fans are asked to make donations to the Steve McNair Foundation.
The former quarterback was found shot to death inside a Nashville condo Saturday. A 20-year-old woman police say he had been dating was found dead beside him.
Police say McNair was the victim of homicide, though they aren’t yet ready to label Sahel Kazemi’s death a suicide.
