Atlanta-Eight people (mostly Asian women) were killed in three shootings in the Atlanta-territory space before police arrested a man on suspicion of murder on Tuesday night. ..
Robert Aaron Long, 21, of Woodstock, Georgia, has been charged with eight murders against the suspect and will appear in court on Thursday.

He said they grew up in Detroit with a total of nine siblings, riding dirt bikes, spending summer weekends on the lake and playing pranks together. The two served in the US Army at the same time, and his brother served as an infantry soldier in the late 1980s.
I was basically like twins because I was the closest in age, John said. We did everything when we grew up.
John says Paul Michele owns an alarm company in Atlanta, and he and his wife Bonnie have lived for 26 years. He was a very hard-working Republican, John added, and was a strong supporter of Trump.
