A black ex-NFL player killed a white doctor, his white wife, and two of their grandchildren, ages 5 and 9, and one other man, unknown race.
Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, and his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69, were pronounced dead at the scene along with grandchildren Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5, the York County coroner's office said.
Of course AP isn't presenting this as a racial story.
AP source: NFL player Phillip Adams killed 5, then himself By MEG KINNARD, AP, 46 minutes ago
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The [black] gunman who killed five people including a prominent [white] doctor in South Carolina was former NFL player Phillip Adams, who killed himself early Thursday, according to a source who was briefed on the investigation.
The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly, said Adams’ parents live near the doctor’s home in Rock Hill, and that he had been treated by the doctor. The source said Adams killed himself after midnight with a .45-caliber weapon.
The York County Sheriff’s Office said they had searched for hours before finding the suspect in a nearby home. [More]
