The only survivor of last week’s mass shooting by former NFL player, Phillip Adams in Rock Hill, South Carolina has died.
Robert Shook, a 38-year-old air conditioning technician from Cherryville, North Carolina, died of gunshot wounds at Atrium Health Care in Charlotte after he was airlifted from Wednesday’s shooting scene, York County Coroner Sabrina Gast said. He died surrounded by his family.
He was working the job with his friend, and co-worker James Lewis at the home of Dr. Robert Lesslie when Adams showed up and started shooting.
“We are all heart broken and our attention must turn to comforting each other and Robert’s family,” GSM services said in a statement. “Please keep his family in your prayers tonight and in the coming days as we all face this together.”
Shook had been the only survivor of the shooting that claimed the lives of his co-worker and friend James Lewis, 38, Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69, two of their grandchildren, Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5.
The day after the shooting, Shook’s cousin, Heather Thompson, told Charlotte TV station WBTV that Shook “is a hard-working man who put himself through school to provide for his family.”
He was married and raising three children with his wife Holly. Eli is 7, Johnnie is 13 and Keleigh is 18 and close to graduating high school.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for Shook and Lewis.
