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."
