Georgia Shooting: 8 people shot dead in Massage parlors

Police say video evidence has led them to believe the same suspect, Robert Aaron Long, is responsible for all three shootings.

The attacks began around 5 p.m., when five people were shot at Youngs Asian Massage Parlor in a strip mall near a rural area in Acworth, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Atlanta, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Jay Baker said.

Two people died at the scene and three were transported to a hospital where two of them also died, Baker said.

Around 5:50 p.m., police in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, responding to a call of a robbery in progress, found three women dead from apparent gunshot wounds at Gold Spa. While they were at that scene, they learned of a call reporting shots fired at another spa across the street, Aromatherapy Spa, and found a woman who appeared to have been shot dead inside the business.

Little is known about the victims as officials are still working to notify next of kin.
However, four of the victims have been identified as being of Korean ethnicity, South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday. The Ministry said it was working to confirm the nationality of those killed and will provide the necessary support.
The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office identified a suspect as 21-year-old Long of Woodstock, Georgia.
Long was apprehended in Crisp County, Georgia, around 8:30 p.m. ET. The county is about 150 miles south of Atlanta.
The Atlanta Police Department said it believes Long is responsible for all three attacks, based on video evidence.
