According to CNN, police reports indicate that a man shot four people to death and then turned the gun on himself at a suburban Atlanta area spa Tuesday.

As of now the police do not have a motive for the suspected murder-suicide, which occurred at the Su Jung Health Spa in Norcross, Georgia Tuesday night.

Local officers responded to a call at from the spa around 8:45 pm EST and found 4 dead when they arrived. A fifth person was wounded and conscious but died later after being shipped to a local hospital, according to Norcross police Captain Brian Harr.

In total 3 men and 2 women died. Police refused to release the names because the victim's families had yet to be notified of their passing.

Officials hope to release more information later today.

This shooting is just as curious and sad as any other mass murder. With 5 dead and presumably no one left to punish for these tragedies the true motive that prompted the shootings may never truly be discovered. As the police reports indicate it looks as if the shootings ended in suicide, yet that could change as we should know more as more facts are released later today.

All that we can do is send our thoughts and prayers to the families of those who died too  soon and hope that similar instances occur less frequently in the future.
