South Carolina Mass Shooting: 911 Caller Describes His Conversation with One of the Victims
Former NFL player Phillip Adams has been identified as the culprit in the South Carolina mass shooting that claimed a famous doctor and his family's lives. Authorities reveal that a 911 call alerted them to the crime.
Authorities have been searching for clues in the latest mass shooting that happened in South Carolina following a series of horrific random killings that have taken place in recent days.
The police report revealed that a former NFL player Phillip Adams was behind the horrible killing in South Carolina that claimed the lives of a local doctor, his wife, and his two little grandchildren.
The motive behind the disgraceful act is yet to be ascertained as the record shows no doctor-patient relationship between the late Dr. Robert Lesslie and the former NFL player. Still, authorities claimed that Adams left traces that pointed to him.
According to York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson, who spoke at a press conference, the killer forced his way into the Lesslie home where he killed the 70-year-old doctor, including HVAC technicians he shot in the driveway.
