Christian doctor and author of “Angels in the ER”, Dr. Robert D. Lesslie, was murdered at his home early this morning with his wife and 2 grandchildren (+1 person of unknown parent) by the former player of the NFL Phillip Adams.
Five people were killed – including a prominent doctor, his wife and their two young grandchildren – in a shooting at a house near the town of Rock Hill in South Carolina on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
Investigators believe the suspect was the sole attacker and are trying to figure out why someone allegedly shot Dr Robert Lesslie and some of his family, said Sheriff’s spokesman Trent Faris.
The grandchildren killed were aged 5 and 9, the York County Coroner’s Office said.
