Georgia police officials held a press conference Wednesday following shootings that occurred Tuesday night at massage parlors in the Atlanta area that left 8 people dead, many of them women of Asian descent, authorities said.

Law enforcement officials stated the suspect in the fatal shooting indicated he had issues with sexual addiction, and the shootings may have not been motivated by racial hatred.

Officials also said suspect Robert Aaron Long, 21, appeared to have frequented the spas targeted in the shootings and that he headed towards Florida afterwards, perhaps to carry out further shootings.

“This was a tragic day with many victims. But thankfully the suspect was quickly apprehended,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said.
