Phillip Adams, a former NFL cornerback who played six seasons in the league with six different teams, was identified as the gunman who killed five people in South Carolina, including a prominent doctor, before turning the gun on himself.

The shooting took place in Rock Hill, South Carolina. A source close to the investigation confirmed Adams’ identity to The Associated Press on Thursday. Officials later confirmed Adams’ identity.

Adams’ parents lived near Rock Hill and the football player had been treated by the doctor at one point, the person told The AP. 

Adams, 32, last played in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons in 2015. He was a seventh-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2010. He then played for the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders and New York Jets.

Adams suffered multiple injuries, including concussions and a broken ankle, during his NFL career.

The York County Sheriff’s Office said early Thursday they had an identity of the suspect.

The shooting victims were identified as Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70; his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69; their two grandchildren, and James Lewis, 39, who was working at the home when he was struck by gunfire, the sheriff’s office said. Lewis was found dead outside the home. 

The grandchildren were ages 5 and 9, according to the York County Coroner’s Office. 

York County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Trent Faris called Dr. Lesslie “a staple” in Rock Hill for years.

“I’ve lived in Rock Hill my entire life and Dr. Lesslie was my doctor growing up,” Faris said. “Dr. Lesslie has been one of those people that everybody knows. He started Riverview Medical Center in Rock Hill.”

Deputies were called to a home around 4:45 p.m. following a report of a shooting involving multiple individuals. Faris said he was “shocked that this type of incident” occurred in Rock Hill.

“It doesn’t happen here. It’s one of those strange things that a lot of people are going to have a hard time understanding and we just hope that everybody understands that we’re going to do everything we can to try to figure out why this happened here,” Faris said.

An hours-long manhunt ensued following the shooting. During the search, the sheriff’s office described the suspect as “possibly armed and dangerous.” Residents were advised to stay in their homes and lock their doors.

The coroner’s office said they responded to Adams’ home and he was found dead by police after a standoff. Officials said the cause of death was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Rock Hill is located 25 miles from Charlotte, North Carolina.

ATLANTA (AP) — A man killed a woman and then died during a shootout with police at an apartment building in Atlanta’s midtown neighborhood early Wednesday, police said.

“We have one individual that is deceased inside the apartment, and the person that we believe is the assailant also has been killed,” Bryant said.

Deputy Chief Charles Hampton said several rounds were fired, entering multiple units. Police have been able to check the other units and haven’t found any other victims, he said.

Since Atlanta police engaged in a shootout with the man, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate, Bryant said. That is standard procedure when officers fire their guns during encounters with the public.

Police had closed streets around at least four square blocks of office and apartment buildings in response to the gunfire. The heavy emergency response included an armored vehicle, an ambulance and multiple squad cars with officers carrying long guns.

Police closed off West Peachtree and Spring streets between 10th and 14th streets, causing headaches for morning commuters.

Police got calls of a shooting inside the luxury high-rise shortly before 3:30 a.m. and officers responded within five minutes, Atlanta police Chief Rodney Bryant said during a news conference. The man was shooting at the officers who returned fire, he said.

Officers found a woman dead inside the apartment where she lived in Atlantic House Midtown, which at 32 stories is one of the city’s tallest residential buildings. Police said it appears the man and woman knew each other and that there was no force entry. Police were trying to determine whether the man also lived in the building or whether he was visiting.

Mass Shooting

Mass Shooting In MN City Where $1.1 Million In Police Funds Were Shifted To Fund Health Department’s “Violence Interrupters” Leaves 15 Shot…One 20-Yr-Old Woman Dead

The Twin Cities of Minnesota are comprised of two far-left cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul. A large portion of Minneapolis, just across the river from St. Paul, is represented by the America-hating, police bashing, anti-Semitic, race-baiting US Rep. Ilhan Omar (D).

During a June 2020 rally, Rep. Ilhan Omar told the crowd:

“Well, we’ve had a black president, we’ve had a Congressional Black Caucus, we’ve had black mayors, we’ve had black governors, and we’ve had black city councilmembers, we’ve had black police chiefs, yet we are still getting killed, brutalized, surveilled, massley [sic] incarcerated, and we are still having conversations with our children on how to have a conversation with the people that are supposed to protect and serve them so that those people don’t in return kill them. I know what it means for a police officer to look me in the eye and call me a ‘zoo animal.’”

“So, I know that my silence contributes to violence. I will never cosign on funding a police department that continues to brutalize us, and I will never stop saying not only do we need to disinvest police but we need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department because here’s the thing, there’s a cancer. Everybody knows what cancer is? So, when somebody gets a cancer and that cancer starts to spread throughout their body and you know the root of that cancer is the leg, people say to the family of that person, ‘We have to amputate this leg in order for that cancer not to spread and kill that person.’”

“They don’t say, ‘We’re going to continue to give medication and we’re gonna continue to try different things and we’re gonna continue to slowly die,’” she continued. “We’re going to do everything that we can to cut the source of that cancer so that you can have the ability to live. So today we are saying we don’t want your damn reforms, we don’t want the slow dying of our communities to continue. What we want you to do is to cut the cancer so that it does not continue to spread throughout our bodies. The Minneapolis Police Department is rotten to the root, and so when we dismantle it, we get rid of that cancer, and we allow for something beautiful to rise, and that reimagining allows us to figure out what public safety looks like for us.”

When this whole thing fails, take note that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar also supports the dismantling of the Minneapolis Police Department. pic.twitter.com/cW3O745oq5

A March 2021 poll by USA Today and Ipsos found that fewer than 1 in 5 Americans actually support defunding the police. Yet, Omar herself supports “dismantling” the Minneapolis Police Department, calling them “rotten” in the summer of 2020.

A Center of the American Experiment poll conducted this summer found that 69% of Minnesotans trust law enforcement, and 79% of Minneapolis and St. Paul residents are concerned about the level of crime.

MPR News – In August 2020, the Minneapolis City Council, comprised of a group of far-left radicals that includes the son of Minnesota’s Communist AG Keith Elison, moved $1.1 million from the police to the health department to fund “violence interrupters” who would mediate conflicts and head off further trouble.

Last night, a mass shooting took place both inside and outside of a crowded Minnesota bar. At least 15 people were shot. In addition, a young woman who was shot in the bar has died. The local police reported that were “bullet holes all over.”

According to the New York Post – Officers found a “hellish situation” when they arrived at the Seventh Street Truck Park bar in St. Paul about 12:15 a.m., cops said in a statement.

“In an instant, they found themselves caught in a hellish situation,” St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell said.

Gunshot victims were found inside the bar, on the sidewalk, and in the street, according to the Pioneer Press. The woman, who hasn’t been publicly identified, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said she was in her 20s.

“I think about the young woman who died,” police spokesman Steve Linders told the outlet. “One minute she’s having a good time, the next minute she’s lying in her friends’ arms who are trying to save her life, and she didn’t make it. I can’t think of anything worse.”

Three men, ages 33, 32, and 29, were arrested, CBS Minnesota reported.

“The suspects are currently in the hospital being treated for injuries,” Axtel tweeted.
