Six of the dead victims were of Asian descent, raising suspicions that the attacks might have been motivated by racial hate. A suspect who claimed responsibility for the shootings was apprehended by the authorities in southern Georgia. The suspect also claims that the crime was not racially motivated but that his violent actions were a result of his sex addiction.
