Authorities name all eight Atlanta shooting victims

Authorities in the city of Atlanta have named the remaining four victims of Tuesday’s massage parlour shootings.

The release of the four names by the Fulton county medical examiner’s office on Friday followed the naming of four other victims by the Cherokee County sheriff’s office on Wednesday.

Six of the eight victims were women from the Asian-American community, sparking another reckoning with race for the US.

Robert Aaron Long, the suspect, allegedly carried-out the shootings across three of the city’s massage parlours in a spate of fatal shootings in Fulton and Cherokee counties on Tuesday evening.

All eight victims have since been named, as Soon Chung Park, 74; Hyun Jung Grant, 51; Suncha Kim, 69; and Yong Yue, 63, who were shot in Fulton County, and Delaina Ashley Yaun, 33; Paul Andre Michels, 54; Xiaojie Tan, 49; and Daoyou Feng, 44, in Cherokee County.
