(Reuters) – Eight people, six of them women of Asian descent, were shot dead in a string of attacks at day spas in and around Atlanta, and a man suspected of carrying out the shootings was arrested in southern Georgia, police said.

Although authorities declined to offer a motive for the violence, the attacks prompted the New York Police Department’s counter-terrorism unit to announce the deployment of additional patrols in Asian communities there as a precaution.

South Korea’s foreign ministry said its consulate-general in Atlanta had confirmed that the victims included four women of Korean descent but was verifying their nationality.

The bloodshed began about 5 p.m. on Tuesday when four people were killed and another was wounded in a shooting at Young’s Asian Massage in Cherokee County, about 40 miles north of Atlanta, Captain Jay Baker of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department said.

When folded, the purse has a magnetic snap button to ensure closure as well as a zippered accessory pocket to securely hold a passport, phone,

Cleanse. Moisturize. Protect. These three pillars of skincare have guided Madelin White, the owner of Merle Norman Cosmetics, Wigs, and Day Spa in Lacey, through her 46 years in the beauty industry. And according to Madelin, a thorough skincare regimen is more important than ever with the increase of mask usage during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Because more people are wearing a mask, a lot of them aren’t wearing makeup as much,” explains Madelin. “But I have been very strongly recommending that people take extra good care of their skin.”
