A manhunt is underway for a man who appeared in surveillance footage outside one of two spas where shootings occurred in the Atlanta area in Cherokee County, Georgia. At least four people have died in two separate shootings. Police have not said whether the two shootings are related. Police told Channel 2 Action News that all four victims were female and appeared to be Asian. Piedmont Road was shut down in both directions near Cheshire Bridge Road due to heavy police activity.
Atlanta’s CBS News affiliate reports:
Atlanta Police said three people were killed at the Gold Spa. The fourth person was killed across the street at the Aromatherapy Spa. Right now, officers are searching the area for possible suspects. The shooting comes just about an hour after Cherokee County deputies responded to a shooting at a separate massage parlor off Hwy 92 that left three dead and several others hurt. Police have not said if the two are connected.
