Atlanta Mayor Says Asian Spa Shootings are Crimes Against Every American

President Biden is expected to address the tragedy publicly this evening

Today, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms condemned the attacks on three Atlanta-area spas that left eight people dead, including six Asian women.

“Whether it is senseless violence that we've seen play out in our streets, or more targeted violence like we saw yesterday, a crime against any community is a crime against us all,” Bottoms said at a news conference.
