Rock Hill, South Carolina-People familiar with the matter said that the man who shot and killed five people, including a famous doctor, in South Carolina was identified as a former National Football League player Philip Adams, who committed suicide earlier today.
The source spoke on an anonymous basis because she did not have the right to testify in public. She said that Adams’ parents lived near the home of the doctor Rockhill and he had been treated by the doctor. The source claimed that Phillips committed suicide with a 0.45 caliber pistol after midnight.
The police said they searched for several hours before looking for neighbors.
After the 33-year-old Adams shined at South Carolina State University, he played for several NFL teams, including the San Francisco 49ers and the Atlanta Falcons. During his career, he suffered multiple injuries, including concussions and broken ankles.
Adams rarely served as a starter. He was also a member of the New England, Seattle, Oakland and New York Jets. He joined the Falcons in 2015 and ended his career.
As a rookie at the end of the 2010 season, Adams suffered a serious ankle injury and required surgery to insert a few screws into his leg. He no longer played for the 49ers, was fired and signed with the New England team before the 2011 season. It was not until 2013, with the help of Raiders, that he was able to maintain his salary throughout the season.
The coroner said that Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, and his 69-year-old wife Barbara Lesslie, 9-year-old grandsons Adah Lesslie and 5-year-old Noah Lesslie were pronounced dead at the scene.
Police spokesman Trent Faris (Trent Faris) said that a man working at home, 38-year-old James Lewis (James Lewis) was found dead outside, and a sixth person was hospitalized with gunshot wounds.
Faris said officials went to Leslie’s residence in the Rock Hill area around 4:45 pm on Wednesday.
Rock Hill is the northernmost city in South Carolina, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest of Charlotte, North Carolina.
