A sixth victim has died as result of injuries in last week’s shooting in South Carolina allegedly carried out by former NFL player Phillip Adams.

York County Coroner Sabrina Gast confirmed the death of air conditioning technician Robert Shook, 38, who was the last surviving victim of the shooting spree.

Authorities say Adams killed Rock Hill physician Robert Lesslie; his wife, Barbara; two of their grandchildren, 9-year-old Adah Lesslie and 5-year-old Noah Lesslie; and another technician, James Lewis, who was working with Shook at the Lesslie home.

Adams, a five-year NFL veteran, reportedly was being treated by Lesslie. Adams later shot himself, per authorities.

Adams, 32, played in the NFL from 2010-15 after being selected out of South Carolina State by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the draft. He also spent time with the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders, New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons.

According to WRAL, Shook called his supervisor after he was shot, and his supervisor then called 911,” Yahoo Sports relayed.
