https://www.11alive.com/article/news/cr ... 34bcd27633Police arrested a suspect after eight people were killed in shootings at three separate massage parlors in the Atlanta area Tuesday, March 16. Now the FBI has joined the investigation.
Two spas were in Atlanta and one was in Cherokee County. Police said six of the eight victims were Asian women; Cherokee County officials confirmed to 11Alive there is one suspect for all of the shootings.
"He apparently has an issue. What he considers a sex addiction and sees these locations as something that allows him to go to these places and it's a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate," Baker said.
6 of the 8 killed were Asian women.
"He was pretty much fed up and kind of at the end of his rope. Yesterday was a really bad day for him and this is what he did," Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Jay Baker said Wednesday.
- Was this rampage racially motivated or a result of sexual addiction?
- Can this incident be considered to be just "having a really bad day"?
