The man who slaughtered 5 people Wednesday, including 2 children, at a home in South Carolina has been identified as former NFL player Phillip Adams...

quote:

Officials believe 32-year-old Adams -- a 7th-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft -- stormed a home in Rock Hill, SC on Wednesday afternoon and shot 5 people to death.

The victims have been identified as 70-year-old Dr. Robert Lesslie, his 69-year-old wife, Barbara Lesslie -- and their grandchildren, 9-year-old Adah Lesslie and 5-year-old Noah Lesslie.

A 5th victim, 38-year-old James Lewis, was working at the home when the gunman opened fire, killing him.

A 6th person was shot -- but that person survived and is being treated at a nearby hospital.

A furious manhunt was underway for the gunman.

But, the case took another dark twist on Thursday morning ... when sources say officials found the body of Phillip Adams, who appeared to have taken his own life around midnight Thursday morning, by way of gunshot.

According to the reports, there was a prior connection between Adams and the victims -- the football player's parents live in the area and Phillip had reportedly been previously treated by Dr. Robert Lesslie.

Another homicide by the group who commits over 53 percent of all murders each year. Ban them.

Lebrain James looks through a pair of Tunnel Vision Glasses and only sees what is beneficial to his racist agenda!

Abolish the game of American Football and banish it forever. This game is KILLING people. Abolish the game. Put all of the college football players into other sports. Put all of the NFL players out of the stadiums and domes, and put them in productive safe jobs. GET RID OF FOOTBALL.

Black shooter, all white family. Seems racially driven to me, just following media's direction of the races were flipped.

Correct...if this would be the other way around it would most definitely be classified as a "Race Crime"! Sad arse liberal media has divided this country to a point of no return! Double set of standards here for sure!

If you going to blame it on football, then I blame the parents. Lock the parents up if that is the case.

Could have at least shot himself in the stomach like Junior Seau so they could study the brain for CTE.
