A relaxing evening at an Atlanta-area spa turned deadly when a gunman walked in and shot four people before killing himself. Investigators said about 20 spa-goers were lounging inside the Su Jung Health Sauna in Norcross at around 8:30 p.m. when the man came in, shot two women and two men and then shot himself.

“I think it happened so quickly that a lot of the people didn’t realize what happened, and then it was over,” Norcross Police Capt. Brian Harr told local radio station WSB.
Three customers and the gunman were pronounced dead on the scene, while a fourth victim died later at a local hospital, police said.
The shooter and the victims were not identified, though police suspect the gunman may have been related to the Korean spa’s owner.
Harr said the killings were “not random.”
“It’s probably domestic-related,” he told The Associated Press.
Located on a strip mall about 15 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta, the spa stood in a stand-alone brick building decorated with Greek-style columns, statues, fountains and other ancient flourishes.
On Yelp, a handful of customers raved about the spa’s variety of wet and dry saunas, body scrubs, massages and lounge areas.
“A nice place to unwind and spend a couple of hours,” one user wrote.
Specialists from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation joined police at the crime scene on Wednesday and were using 3D technology to recreate the scene, AP reported.
