York County Sheriff’s Office deputies said an eight-hour manhunt ended around 1 a.m. at a home near where the shooting happened.

York County Coroner Sabrina Gast identified the victims found dead in the house as: Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70; his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69; Adah Lesslie, 9; and Noah Lesslie, 5.

17. Former NFL Player Travis Rudolph Arrested and Charged with Murder in Double Shooting Case

Former NFL player Travis Rudolph has been arrested in connection to a double shooting on early Wednesday morning that left one man dead and another injured.

Deputies from the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office were called to the 500 block of N. Redwood Drive in Lake Park, Florida, shortly after midnight about a double shooting that stemmed from an altercation, according to authorities.
...
He signed with the New York Giants in 2017 draft and played in seven games with the team.

Rudolph then spent a short time with the Miami Dolphins before signing with the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

13. My son and his wife live in Rock Hill.

All the gun advocates will sing that had the doctor had a gun, it would not have happened. I know what I would like to do with all their damn guns.

I respond, "Sure, but if you give everyone a gun, what the hell do you think is going to happen?"

18. we always seem to lose the best and the brightest

This couple was facing the best years of their lives: after successful careers, they were spending time with their grandchildren.

Dr. Lesslie, as those of you who read the story know, was a major contributor to healthcare services in that area.

He wrote an inspirational book for those who face the emergency room. Here's the synopsis from Amazon:

Twenty-five years in the ER could become a résumé for despair, but for bestselling author Dr. Robert D. Lesslie, it's a foundation for inspiring stories of everyday "angels"—friends, nurses, doctors, patients, and even strangers who offer love, help, and support in the midst of trouble.

"The ER is a difficult and challenging place to be. Yet the same pressures and stresses that make this place so challenging also provide an opportunity to experience some of life's greatest wonders and mysteries." Dr. Lesslie illuminates messages of hope while sharing fast-paced, captivating stories about:

discovering lessons from the ER frontline
watching everyday miracles unfold
holding on to faith during tragedy and triumph
embracing the healing balm of hope

For anyone who enjoys true stories of the wonders of the human spirit, this immensely popular book is a reminder that hope can turn emergencies into opportunities and trials into demonstrations of God's grace.

snip

This is one of only six books written by Dr. Lesslie. They all seek to provide inspiration for people and provide an inside look at the practice of medicine.

Not many people are able to accomplish so much in so many arenas. Heartbreaking that this was the end of such a successful life.

And let's not forget the worker who was there, just doing his job, as so many of us do every day.

And all because this country can't get a handle on the violence in television and computer games, weapons control, and mental health.

We can be thankful, however, that President Biden is announcing some measures today. It's a start.
