Recent shootings at massage parlors in the Atlanta area have resulted in the deaths of eight people affected by the rise of hate crimes against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.


According to a statement from the Atlanta Police Department's Public Affairs Unit, three women died on March 16 from what appears to be gunshot wounds inside the Gold Spa massage parlor.

Police also responded to reports that shots were being fired at another massage parlor across the street. Arriving at the scene, they discovered that another woman had been shot and killed.

Besides the other attacks, two shootings were reported at another spa nearby, where two victims were killed immediately. Three others received hospital treatment, and two of them were also killed.

Although there's no indication that the suspect's motives were racial, some of the victims were Asian women. Here's more information about the Atlanta-area shooting victims.



In addition to Young's Asian Spa, where the first shooting took place, Xiaojie Tan ran Wang's Feet and Body Massage in Kennesaw, Georgia. When she was killed, Tan was one day shy of her 50th birthday.



A single mother living with her two sons and his younger brother, Hyun Jung Grant, 51, was one of three people fatally shot at the Gold Spa. The rest of the family lives in South Korea.


The victim, Delaina Ashley Yaun, 33, is one of four killed at Young's Asian Massage outside Acworth, Georgia. Yaun is a mother of two who was killed at the spa while visiting her husband for the first time.



According to a source, Paul Andre Michels, 54, had been working for Young's Asian Spa for some time when the shooting occurred. The day of the shooting, he built his last shelf there.



The exact whereabouts of Daoyou Feng, 44, who only recently started working at Young's Massage, is unknown. Her surname appears to be Chinese, but officials have not confirmed the information.

Yong Ae Yue, 63, Suncha Kim, 69, and Soon Chung Park, 74, were also identified as other shootings victims. Meanwhile, Elcias Hernandez-Ortiz has been identified as the lone survivor of the shootings.

The suspect was identified as Robert Aaron Long, 21, of Woodstock, Ga. After a manhunt, the authorities reported he was captured in Crisp County, about 150 miles south of Atlanta.
