Robert Aaron Long, 21, of Woodstock, Georgia, was taken into custody.

A 21-year-old man has been captured in southwest Georgia, hours after eight people were killed in shootings at three Atlanta-area massage parlors.

Cherokee County sheriff’s Capt. Jay Baker said Robert Aaron Long of Woodstock, Georgia, was taken into custody in Crisp County on Tuesday night following a police car chase, about 150 miles south of Atlanta – about a three-hour drive.

The Crisp County Sheriff’s Office said it received information on the suspect’s car and spotted it driving along a highway whereupon police gave chase ultimately ramming the vehicle off the road.

The eight women, many of them Asian, were shot dead in three separate shootings at two spas and a massage parlor in and around Atlanta.

The first shooting happened just before 5 pm at Young’s Asian Massage parlor off Bells Ferry Road and Highway 92 in Acworth, Georgia about 30 miles north of Atlanta.

It appears that all five victims were shot inside the business.

Two of the victims were dead and three were transported to a hospital where two of them also died, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jay Baker said.
