Along with the heart-wrenching post, the company posted a photograph of Shook wearing his red work gear while offering a subtle smile. Facebook users flooded the comments section to send their condolences.

"Continued prayers for the families and all friends and the work-family. Such a senseless tragedy. We must trust God; he is all-knowing, said one user. Another added how sorry he was to learn about Shook's passing and that words cannot express how he felt.

Shook was one of the two HVAC technicians who were at the home of Dr. Robert Lesslie when former NFL player Phillip Adams shot them in the driveway before gaining access into Lesslie's house and opened fire at him and his family.

After surviving the shooting, he was transported to Atrium Medical Center in Charlotte, where he died, according to the York County Coroner’s office.

The 38-year-old and five other victims lost their lives due to the shooting, including his coworker, James Lewis, 38 years old, and the shooter who took his own life. Shook sustained six gunshot wounds.

According to People, the authorities have not yet disclosed what may have motivated Adams to kill the victims on April 7. A York County Sheriff, Kevin Tolson, revealed no evidence suggests a possible doctor-client relationship between Adams and Lesslie.

However, he discovered that there was unspecified evidence that Adams left in the 70-year-old physician’s home that indicated that he was the suspect.
