Alonzo Adams, said he wasn’t aware of his son ever being violent before he used two guns to kill six people at a home in Rock Hill late Wednesday afternoon.
“I can say he’s a good kid. I think the football messed him up,” Alonzo said of Phillip, 32, who at one time played for the several teams.
“I don’t think he ever did anybody any harm,” he added.
According to York County Sheriff's Office Adams went to the home of Dr. Robert Leeslie late on the afternoon of April 7, 2021 apparently with the intent to rob the doctor of cash or drugs that he thought was at the Leeslie home. Prior reports that the doctor had treated Adams have since been determined to be unfounded.
Adams, despite the statements by his father, was no stranger to law enforcement in both North and South Carolina.
Adams apparently had prior arrests for weapons, and domestic violence in Mecklenburg County and had appeared in York County traffic count the day prior to the shooting charged with numerous traffic offenses including, driving with a suspended license, no proof of insurance and expired or factious license plate.
Liberal media is has run with football brain damage narrative, not surprisingly and continues to define this crime as a "murder - suicide" even though Adams didn't actually kill himself until he was cornered with no chance of escape nearly 12 hours later.
Adams was quickly determined to be a suspect because left substantial evidence and personal items at the crime scene.
The killer's brain was removed at MUSC and sent to Boston University for CTE analysis.
