Authorities in South Carolina have confirmed that former NFL player Phillip Adams was the person who killed five people, including a prominent doctor, his wife and their two grandchildren in South Carolina.

They said in a news conference Thursday that they had not yet determined a motive.

"There’s nothing right now that makes sense to any of us, said York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson.
