THE sixth victim of a mass shooting carried out by former NFL star Phillip Adams has died from his injuries after a three-day fight.
Robert Shook was reportedly shot multiple times by Adams, 33, who killed five others – including one of Shook’s colleagues – before taking his own life in South Carolina on Wednesday.

Family members of Shook previously told The Sun that Shook had “lost a lot of blood” and had a “long road ahead of him” after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds in the deadly massacre that has rocked the community of Rock Hill.
Adams had been working on the air conditioning unit outside of Dr. Robert Lesslie’s home when Adams’ rampage began just after 4pm on Wednesday.
He was shot numerous times along side his colleague, James Lewis, 38, before Lesslie, 70, his wife Barbara, 69, and their two grandchildren, Adah, nine, and Noah, five, were all gunned down inside the property.
Shook had been the only initial survivor of the shooting, managing to call his supervisor at the Gastonia-based GSM Services and telling them to alert police, before losing consciousness.
“One just called me. He can’t talk. He’s screaming ‘I’ve been shot, I’ve been shot’,” the supervisor told dispatchers of Shook’s call. “And I ask him where the other one is, he said he’s laying there and he’s unresponsive and he was shot also.”
Shook was airlifted to Charlotte by paramedics and underwent multiple surgeries to stop profound bleeding and “repair the holes in his stomach and his colon”, family members previously revealed.
However, more than three days after the deadly shooting, Shook tragically succumbed to his injuries on Saturday evening.
News of Shook’s death was first announced in a statement from the York County Coroner’s Office.
