    Ex NFL Player Philip Adams, Kills Five and Himself

    Authorities in South Carolina have confirmed that ex-NFL player Phillip Adams is the suspected gunman who broke into the Rock Hill home of a prominent doctor Wednesday evening and killed him and four others, before also killing himself.
    What police are still grappling with 24 hours later is why.
    In a Thursday afternoon news conference, York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson admitted, “There’s nothing about this that makes sense to any of us.”
    Tolson described Dr. Robert Lesslie as a devoted father and grandfather, an active church member and “pillar in this community.”

    The dead are Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70
    His Wife Barbara Lesslie 69
    Their Grandchildren Ada 9 and Noah 5
    Repairman James Lewis 38
    another victim, who was shot, has been taken to the hospital and is in very critical condition.

    Phillip Adams was found in another home where he fled to before taking his own life.

    My theory is, the doctor was treating Adams in the past, Adams may have gotten hooked on painkillers, the doctor probably took him off of them and Adams went there to ask for more and the doctor refused, which may have enraged Adams and he shot and killed those mentioned.

    I wonder if CTE will play a role in this one.

    His brain is being tested for signs of injury, I mean he already had a concussion but they are wondering if that is caused him to do that, I remember when my estranged dad got a horrible head injury it changed him.
