The Associated Press on Thursday said former NFL player Phillip Adams was the triggerman who shot and killed five people in Rock Hill, South Carolina on Wednesday afternoon before killing himself. The wire service sourced his identity to “a source who was briefed on the investigation” who was not authorized to speak publicly.

The victims were Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, and his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69. The doctor’s grandchildren, Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5, were also killed. James Lewis, 39, was the fifth person killed. ABC News reported that Lewis was working from the home when he was shot.

The AP said Adams had been Dr. Lesslie’s patient.  Adams’ parents live near the Lesslie home, and Adams grew up in Rock Hill, where the shooting occurred, the report said.

Adams played two years with the Oakland Raiders, one year with the Atlanta Falcons, one year with the New England Patriots, one year with the New York Jets, one year with the Seattle Seahawks, and one year with the San Francisco 49ers, online records indicate. He was a defensive back between 2010 and 2015.

Opinion: How many women does it take, NFL, before you take action against Deshaun Watson? .
The NFL has failed to take any action against Texans QB Deshaun Watson despite multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. That has to change. Now.Saying the allegations are "deeply disturbing" doesn't count as action. Everyone is "deeply disturbed" by what we're seeing. Those words have also become so watered down they don't mean as much as they used to. I'm deeply disturbed when my wireless quits.
