Captain Jay Baker of the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said on Wednesday that a man who admitted murdering 8 people at two Asian spas had a "really bad day."
At a press conference in Atlanta, Baker said that he saw no indications that 21-year-old Robert Aaron Long had racial motivations for the killings that left six Asian people dead.
"The suspect did take responsibility for the shootings," Baker explained. "He does claim that it was not racially motivated. He apparently has an issue, what he considers sex addiction and sees these locations as something that allows him to go to these places and it's a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate."
Baker said that investigators believe Long understands the gravity of his actions.
"He was pretty much fed up and kind of at the end of his rope and yesterday was a really bad day for him," he observed. "And this is what he did."
