When news outlets first reported the crime on Saturday, July 3, police had not yet discovered the bodies of two more shooting victims concealed under the retractable cover in the bed of the pickup truck.

One of the victim's was identified as Paul Pierson, the registered owner of the truck. The third victim, a Hispanic male, has not been identified. Both men had also been shot to death.

It is unclear if the two victims in the truck or the killer are connected to the country club.

The private course sits along McCollum Parkway near Kennesaw State University’s main campus.

Siller leaves behind a wife and two young boys. A GoFundMe page raised over $190,000 in donations for the family.

Authorities have identified the teenager who shot and killed eight Fed-Ex employees in Indianapolis and wounded several others.

Police say Brandon Scott Hole, 19, shot four people outside the FedEx facility near the Indianapolis airport on Thursday night.

The former Fed-ex employee then entered the facility and killed four others before turning the gun on himself.

Five people were hospitalized with bullet wounds. One is in critical condition, police say.

The FBI identified Hole and released a recent mugshot of him to the news media.

Hole's mother had warned police that he planned to commit "suicide by cop," the FBI said.

Hole was questioned last year and police seized a weapon from him after his mother warned authorities that he might try "suicide by cop."

CNN reporter Ana Cabrera tweeted, "The suspect in the Indianapolis mass shooting was known to federal and local authorities prior to the attack."

Federal agents served a search warrant on Hole's home, and seized evidence including computers and electronic devices early Friday.

A mother-of-two who went to a Georgia massage parlor with her husband for a couple's treatment was among 8 people killed by a sex addict gunman on Tuesday.

Delaina Ashley Yaun, 33, was in Young's Asian Massage parlor in Acworth with her husband for a couple's massage when Robert Aaron Long pulled up outside around 4:45 p.m.

Surveillance video shows Long, 21, stalking some of the victims in the parking lot before he entered the building and opened fire.

Yaun was shot dead at the scene but her husband managed to escape unharmed, according to friends who created a GoFundMe account asking for donations.

Long killed four people, wounding one, at the massage parlor in Cherokee County, before driving 30 miles to Atlanta where he killed four people at two massage parlors.

He was captured around 8:30 p.m. when an alert state trooper spotted his SUV and performed a PIT maneuver on I-75 in Crisp County, Ga., about 150 miles south of Atlanta.

He was on his way to Florida to carry out more attacks when he was caught.

Long confessed to the killings, and he claimed the murders weren't racially motivated.

"[H]e has an issue that he considers a sex addiction and sees these locations as something that allows him to go to these places... it's a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate," Captain Jay Baker of the Cherokee Sheriff's Office said at a Wednesday press conference.

Baker added that it had been a "very bad day" for the suspect, and "He was at the end of his rope".

Buzzfeed News later uncovered a racist post shared to Baker's Facebook account.

The post shows images of t-shirts and a t-shirt shop. The black t-shirts are printed with biohazard signs and the words "Covid-19 IMPORTED VIRUS FROM CHY-NA."

A God-fearing Georgia man killed eight people at three Atlanta-area massage parlors because he believed Asian women caused his sex addiction.

Robert Aaron Long, 21, killed eight people - including six Asian women - at three massage parlors on Tuesday evening.

He then fled Georgia, heading south to Florida where he intended to kill more Asian women.

Long was taken into custody around 8:30 p.m. by a Georgia State Trooper who performed a PIT maneuver, causing Long's vehicle to spin out on I-75 in Crisp County, about 150 miles south of Atlanta.

Once in custody, he confessed to the murders and said he targeted the spas because he blamed his "sex addiction" on the massage parlors and he wanted to remove "temptation."

He told investigators he was not a racist and the murders were not hate crimes.

Celebrities took to social media on Tuesday and Wednesday to voice their support for the Asian community in Atlanta.

Lulu Wang, Daniel Dae Kim and Mindy Kaling were among those who expressed their concerns for the safety of the Asian American community in Atlanta.

Responding to a tweet that read: "I want to know their names, who and what they loved, the people they had waiting for them at home, everything they hoped for," Wang wrote:

"I know these women. The ones working themselves to the bone to send their kids to school, to send money back home. In too much pain to know what else to say so I’ll just leave this here."

Bernice King and Lebron James also expressed their condolences on Twitter.

Eight people are dead following separate shootings at three Asian spas in the Atlanta area on Tuesday.

Two of the shootings occurred at massage parlors across the street from each other in northeast Atlanta, WSB TV reported.

A third shooting, that left four people dead, was at a massage parlor in Cherokee County, about 30 miles northwest of the city.

Atlanta police responded to a robbery call at the Gold Massage Spa on Piedmont Road around 5 p.m. in Atlanta. They found three people dead at the scene. All three were Asian women.

While there, police received another call of a shooting at Aroma Therapy Spa across the street, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Officers found one person dead at that location, Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant said. The victim was an Asian female, according to AJC.com.

About an hour later, deputies responded to 911 calls of shots fired at Young's Asian Massage near Acworth, Georgia, where five people were found with gunshot wounds.

Two people were pronounced dead at the scene. Three were transported to a hospital, where two died, Cherokee County Sheriff's spokesperson Jay Baker said.

The victims were two Asian women, a white woman and a white man, Baker said. The fifth victim, a Hispanic male, is being treated at a hospital.

Police initially said it was too early to connect all three shootings. A video image of a white male suspect was circulated in the news media.

A 51-year-old man who went on a shooting spree at Miller Coors brewing company in Milwaukee complained repeatedly to HR about racism and harassment in the workplace.

Anthony Ferrill, who is Black, was a former employee who killed five people before turning the gun on himself on Wednesday afternoon.

Ferrill made multiple complaints about racist incidents in the workplace at the Miller Coors brewery.

The allegations came to light in a Facebook post by a Milwaukee businessman who explained "the reason why our Brother snapped at Miller Coors!"

Tony Muhammad wrote: "Why isn't local news asking the why questions? Miller Brewing in Milwaukee has a long and present-day history of employment/on the job discrimination against African American males."

He said Ferrill suffered racial discrimination and harassment from white co-workers. He recently filed a civil lawsuit against Miller Coors's racist work environment, that included a noose hung on his locker.

6 people are confirmed dead, including two suspects who went on a shooting rampage at a cemetery and a kosher market in Jersey City on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said the two suspects "targeted" the Jewish market, where three innocent people were killed, including the wife of the store owner.

According to CBS News, the suspects shot and killed Detective Joseph Seals at a cemetery after he spotted a stolen U-Haul truck that was linked to a murder he was investigating.

The suspects - a male and a female - then drove about a mile to the kosher market, jumped out of the truck and opened fire, killing two innocent shoppers and the store owner's wife inside.

Mayor Fulop said surveillance footage "makes it clear" that the store was targeted by the shooters who engaged SWAT teams in a 2-hour standoff.

"They park the van. They exit the van with long guns in their hands. And they immediately begin firing in the location where we lost three of our citizens yesterday."

The firefight ended when police drove an armored vehicle through the storefront and fatally shot the two suspects.

All of the victims, except the police officer, were Orthodox Jews.

Update: the shooters are identified as David Anderson and Francine Graham. Anderson is a "Black Hebrew Israelite" who published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts on social media.

A Texas man who claimed he distracted a gunman to save the lives of shoppers at an El Paso Walmart was arrested on his way to a ceremony at the White House.

Chris Grant was shot twice as he shopped for snacks for his children on Aug. 3, when a gunman killed 22 people during a shooting rampage.

The 50-year-old spun a tale of heroism and bravery that captured the attention of social media, and even President Trump who invited him to the White House.

Grant was praised and hailed as a hero for trying to save those around him when the shooting began.

He made the rounds of cable news networks including CNN, where his story changed a little each time he told it.

"I saw him popping people off," Grant tearfully told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. "To deter him, I just started chucking bottles. I just started throwing random bottles at him. I'm not a baseball player, so one went this way and on went that way."

Grant said his actions resulted in the gunman targeting him.

He later created a Gofundme page to raise money for his medical bills.

President Trump was impressed with Grant's courage in the face of death.

"Chris grabbed – listen to this – soda bottles and anything else in front of him, and began hurling them at the gunman, distracting him from the other shoppers and causing the shooter to turn toward Chris and fire at Chris, whereby Chris suffered two very serious gunshots,” Trump said.

But police say surveillance video tells a different story. The video shows Grant trying to protect himself - and no one else, police said.

"The video evidence of the scene does not support his assertions," El Paso Police Sgt. Enrique Carrillo told KFOX.

Grant was scheduled to join other "heroes" at a White House ceremony, but he and his family were met by the Secret Service when they arrived in D.C.

Grant was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant, Carillo said. He added that the "hero" was actually a "fugitive from justice."

In a statement the Secret Service also confirmed a "White House visitor with an arrest warrant was temporarily detained."
