Authorities are saying a 21-year-old man has been arrested after multiple shootings at Atlanta-area massage parlors Tuesday evening.

Rodney Bryant, Atlanta's Police Chief, said three people were gunned-down at a spa in Northeast Atlanta. Another person was killed across the street, at another spa. The three victims appeared to be female and possibly Asian.

Police were responding to a robbery in progress just before 6 p.m. when they found three women dead. The fourth lady was shot and killed across the street while police responded to the three women who died.

In Cherokee County, just north of Atlanta, three people were killed at a massage parlor and two others injured, according to reports from local media outlets.

Police have arrested Robert Aaron Long, 21, of Woodstock, in connection to at least one of the fatal shootings that left three people dead.
