Man shoots four, self at Korean spa in US

February 22, 2012 20:37 IST

Five people, including two women, were killed in a shooting incident at a Korean spa outside Atlanta, police said on Wednesday.

Police said they do not yet have a motive for the murder- suicide at the Su Jung Health Spa in Norcross, Georgia, on Tuesday.

They said a man entered the Atlanta spa and shot four people to death before turning the gun on himself.

Officers responded to a call at the spa and found four people dead when they arrived. A fifth person who was wounded but conscious later died at a hospital, CNN quoted Norcross police Captain Brian Harr as saying.

In all, three men and two women died in the incident, Harr said. Authorities withheld their names until they could notify family members.
