Robert Aaron Long the racist shooter behind the four Atlanta area spa shootings that targeted Asian women is set to die if prosecutors get their way. According to prosecutors in the case against Long, 22, they’re filing hate crime charges and in Fulton County have filed notice that they will seek to end Long ‘s life as a result of his heinous crimes.
The indictment presented this week reportedly covers the murders of Suncha Kim, 69; Soon Chung Park, 74; Hyun Jung Grant, 51; and Yong Ae Yue, 63 but not the others in nearby areas. Prosecutors confirmed that they’re seeking the hate crime charges based on the fact that the murders and shootings appeared to target the spas over the race and ethic makeup of those who worked there.
Per county records, Long has been charged with four counts of murder, four counts of felony murder, five counts of assault with a deadly weapon, four counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and one count of domestic terrorism, according to online records.
