New Details Emerge After Mass Shooting Committed By Ex-NFL Player Phillip Adams
The police report on last week’s mass shooting involving former NFL cornerback Phillip Adams who killed six people and then himself in South Carolina.
On Friday night, the York County Sheriff’s office released its findings and it revealed little motive to what led the Rock Hill native to kill six people and then himself, via ESPN.
Robert Shook, one of two HVAC technicians working at the home, “stated the suspect went into the house, then exited and went back through the woods the way he came.”
Shook was still alive and alert at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds. He died three days later.
The others, found dead at the scene, were his partner, James Lewis, 38; homeowners Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70; his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69; and their grandchildren, Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5.
The 32-year-old was a seventh round pick out of South Carolina State in 2010.
Adams played for several NFL teams including the San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, then-Oakland Raiders, New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons. The South Carolina native had not played in the NFL since 2015.
