Eight people were killed in a shooting at a massage parlor in Georgia; the gunman has been apprehended.

 

Authorities said Tuesday that eight people were killed in shootings at two massage parlors in Atlanta and one in the suburbs, the majority of whom were Asian women. After a manhunt, a 21-year-old man was apprehended in southwest Georgia hours later.

Three people were killed at a spa in northeast Atlanta, according to Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant, and a fourth person was killed across the street at another spa. He mentioned that all four victims were female and that they appeared to be Asian.

Around 5:50 p.m., Atlanta police officers responded to a report of a robbery in progress at a spa and discovered three women dead from apparent gunshot wounds, according to police. While they were there, they received a call documenting shots fired at a spa across the street, where they discovered a woman who appeared to have been shot dead inside.

Five people were fired at Youngs Asian Massage Parlor in Acworth, around 30 miles north of Atlanta, about 5 p.m., according to Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Jay Baker. Two of the victims died at the scene, while the other three were taken to a hospital, where two of them died as well, according to Baker.

Baker said authorities were not immediately disclosing the victims’ gender or ethnicity.

Surveillance video showed a man involved in the Acworth shooting driving up to the business around 4:50 p.m. Authorities said it was just minutes before the shooting on Tuesday. Robert Aaron Long, of Woodstock, was apprehended in Crisp County, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) south of Atlanta, according to Baker.

Long, according to Baker, is also a suspect in the Atlanta shootings.

Atlanta police said they deployed officers to search nearby similar businesses and increased patrols in the area after two shootings at massage parlors in Atlanta and awareness of the Acworth shooting.

Nick Cannon shares his 5-month-old baby died from brain tumor

Nick Cannon got emotional this morning announcing on his TV show that his youngest child has died from a brain tumor.

He got choked up several times while explaining what happened to his live studio audience on”The Nick Cannon Show”.

“I am here to show I can fight through this. I feel it, I am vulnerable, I am open, this is a special show dedicated to my beautiful son Zen,” said Cannon on his show.

Cannon explained his 5-month-old son Zen passed away from a brain tumor over the weekend.

He said that he took his son to the hospital because he thought Zen was suffering from sinus problems. Cannon also said he noticed Zen had a big head but joked all his kids had what he called a big “Cannon head.”

The TV host explained it turned out Zen had a brain tumor. The infant had surgery at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Cannon thanked all the doctors and nurses there.

Cannon said Zen took a turn for the worse over Thanksgiving. He decided to spend as much quality time as possible with Zen over the last weekend. Cannon said he woke up Sunday and just felt like he needed to take Zen to the ocean.

Cannon said he usually flies back to New York on Sunday to do his show. He said he went back and forth on what he should do. He said he was heading to the airport when he turned around to go back and be with his son and family. Zen died soon after.

He also said Zen’s mom was amazing and the strongest woman he knew. He says they never had an argument and she was emotional when she needed to be.

Cannon said he leaned on his faith to get through this tough time. He says he didn’t pray for a miracle but for the miracle of God’s strength.

Zen was Nick’s 7th child, born over the summer with model Alyssa Scott.
