South Carolina shooting victim served in hospital, church

Authorities identified the gunman in a mass shooting Wednesday in Rock Hill, S.C., as former NFL player Phillip Adams. Dr. Robert Lesslie, who had previously treated Adams, along with Lesslie’s wife, Barbara, and grandchildren Adah, 9, and Noah, 5, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the York County coroner’s office. James Lewis, 38, who was working at the home, was found dead outside, and a sixth person is in the hospital with “serious gunshot wounds,” said Trent Faris, the York County Sheriff’s Office spokesman. The sheriff’s office said deputies searched for hours before finding the suspect nearby at his parents’ home.
