Relative Reflcts on Fond Memories of Atlanta Shooting Victim Delaina Ashley Yaun González

DeLayne Davis couldn't help but reminisce about her late relative Delaina Ashley Yaun González, one of the Atlanta shooting victims who passed away.


Delaina Ashley Yaun González passed away after being shot by a man who opened fire inside a spa she was visiting. Her sudden death was heartbreaking for her relatives, as she was the kind woman who never had anything bad to say about other people.

Of the eight people killed, six were Asian women.

González, 33, was a proud mom who loved her children more than anything in the world. She was affectionate, family-oriented, and according to Davis, "just a good soul" altogether. However, her life was cut short when a man decided to fire his gun at massage parlors because he was reportedly having a bad day.



Davis remembers González as someone with a pure heart who would always be ready to lend a helping hand to anyone who would have needed it. Making people understand just how kind the late woman was, she said:

"She just had open doors. If [relatives or friends] had any hardships, that's where they went. There was a young lady that lived there – that still lives there right now. She wound up living in Delaina's home because she needed a place to live."



González was one of four who was shot dead at Young's Asian Massage near Acworth in the Atlanta area. At the time, her husband Mario was also in the scene, but in a different room. The massage therapist with him decided to leave the room but told Mario to lock the door. She went out and sadly got fatally shot as well.

At the time, officers took Mario into custody, and he was detained for nearly four hours while trying to process his wife's death. Ultimately, he was released when they had more information on the gunman. The suspected gunman went on to two more spas where he killed others before he was apprehended.


Of the eight people killed, six were Asian women. The youngest victim was González, at 33, while the oldest was 74. While authorities have implied that there was no evidence to suggest it was a racially-motivated crime, people believe so given the rise in hate crimes against Asians in America in the past couple of months.


Investigators arrested 21-year-old Robert Aaron Long two hours after the attacks. He is currently charged with eight counts of murder and one count of assault. His attorney, J. Daran Burns, issued a statement last week offering condolences to the victims and their families.

González worked as a server at a local Waffle House and was a mom of two kids. Her family is left shaken by her sudden death because they considered her as one of the good ones on Earth. Davis also noted that if the late mom were still here, she would have already forgiven the man who did this to her.
