Former NFL pro Phillip Adams behind mass shooting in South Carolina: cops

Dr. Robert Lesslie and his wife, Barbara, along with their two grandchildren, were among five people killed in a shooting in Rock Hill, South Carolina.


A former NFL player shot and killed a doctor, his wife and two grandchildren and one other person before turning the gun on himself in a horrifying scene at a South Carolina home, according to the Associated Press.

Phillip Adam
s, who had stints with the Seahawks, 49ers, Raiders and Jets, opened fire at the home in Rock Hill late Wednesday afternoon, sources told the AP.

Killed in the shooting was Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, his wife Barbara Lesslie, 69, two of their grandchildren, 9-year-old Adah Lesslie and 5-year-old Noah Lesslie, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Adams died by suicide, the AP reported.

A fifth victim, James Lewis, 38, who was working at the home at the time, was also fatally shot. A sixth person, who was not immediately identified, was hospitalized with a serious gunshot wound, authorities said.

Investigators said they have identified a suspect in the mass shooting and detained him after finding him in a nearby home.

“There is no active threat to the community,” sheriff officials tweeted early Thursday.

The suspect, who was not immediately identified, was taken into custody following an eight-hour manhunt, The State reported.

Robert Lesslie had been practicing medicine in Rock Hill since 1981, according to his biography on Riverview House Calls & Riverview Hospice and Palliative Care, where he worked as the medical director. He’s survived by four children. He and Barbara Lesslie had been married for more than 40 years, The State reported.

Lesslie earned his degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and worked at facilities in Greenville and Charlotte, where he served as the chief resident at Charlotte Memorial Hospital.

The board-certified emergency medicine physician also specialized in occupational medicine and had authored several books on his experiences with patients, including “Angels in the ER,” which sold more than 200,000 copies, according to his bio.

“Dr. Lesslie lives in Rock Hill with his wife, Barbara, and their golden retriever, Moses, several miniature horses, goats, donkeys, chickens and a lot of bees,” the bio continues. “They have four grown children and eight growing grandchildren. He enjoys golfing, traveling and bagpiping.”

A spokesman for the York County Sheriff’s Office told the newspaper it’s unclear what connection, if any, that Adams had with the Lesslie family.

“We are all shocked this could happen here in York County,” spokesman Trent Farris said. “This is a mass shooting. Normally you think of a movie theater or a mall, but we are treating this as a mass shooting because there were five victims killed.”

Faris noted how prominent Lesslie had been in the Rock Hill community.

“He was my doctor, if that says enough,” Faris told The State.

Sheriff officials tweeted Wednesday they were looking for a “young black male” wearing a hoodie and camouflage pants after the six victims were found.

Lesslie’s family is asking for privacy as they mourn, Faris said.

YORK COUNTY, S.C. (WBTV/AP) - The gunman who killed five people, including a prominent doctor, his wife, their two grandchildren and a worker, was a former NFL pro Phillip Adams, the Associated Press reports. Adams killed himself early Thursday, according to a source who was briefed on the investigation.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly, said Adams’ parents live near the doctor’s home in Rock Hill, and that he had been treated by the doctor. The source said Phillips killed himself after midnight with a .45 caliber weapon.

The shooting happened just before 5 p.m. on Marshall Road.

Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70 (pictured below), and his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69, were pronounced dead, as were 9-year-old Adah Lesslie and 5-year-old Noah Lesslie.





A fifth victim, identified as 38-year-old James Lewis, from Gaston County, was working at the home when he was fatally shot, according to the York County coroner’s office.

A sixth person was taken to the hospital with serious injuries from gunshot wounds.

“We are shocked that this type of incident happened here,” said Trent Faris, with the York County Sheriff’s Office. “This is a very tragic situation.”

Dr. Lesslie was a prominent doctor in Rock Hill who published several books. Lesslie and his wife were married for at least 35 years.

Faris said Dr. Lesslie started the Riverview Medical Center.

“I’ve lived in Rock Hill my whole life and Dr. Lesslie was my doctor,” Faris said. “A lot of people know doctor Lesslie.”

The shooting led to an hours-long search for what officers called an “armed and dangerous” suspect.

The person deputies believe is responsible for the shooting was found at his home on Marshall Road. Investigators have not released a motive or said whether the alleged shooter knew the victims.

Deputies said they were at the home conducting a search warrant.

Officers would not say if the suspect was alive.

“None of us can figure out why,” Faris said.

Law enforcement helicopters and drones were used to look for the suspect, who was later identified by an AP source as NFL player Phillip Adams. Officials asked citizens in the area to stay inside their homes and lock their doors during the search.
