Georgia police search for motive in spa murders as Asian Americans decry attacks

DM

ATLANTA — Homicide detectives on Thursday weighed the possible motives of a gunman accused of fatally shooting several Asian women in Atlanta-area spas, as a U.S. lawmaker said the Asian-American community was “bleeding” from a recent surge in violence and discrimination. Robert Aaron Long has been charged with murdering four people at two day spas in Atlanta and four others at a massage parlor in Cherokee County, about 40 miles (64 km) north of the state capital, on Tuesday. The four victims in Atlanta and two of the dead in Cherokee County were women of Asian descent.
