Police release 911 emergency calls of Atlanta-area spa shootings

The Atlanta Police Department on Wednesday (March 17) released audio recordings from two 911 emergency phone calls made the day before to report one of the shootings at Atlanta-area day spas that left eight people dead.

The first call, lasting less than two minutes, was from a woman calling from inside the Aromatherapy spa who said she was hiding from a burglar.

“Where is the person who is robbing the spa? Where is he right now?, the dispatcher is heard in the first call, made at 5:47 local time, according to the Atlanta police.

“I don’t know. I’m hiding right now,” the caller is heard saying.

Another call from 10 minutes later ran over four minutes and was made by a female who said her name was Nina and that she was on her way to the same spa where friends there had told her a shooting had occurred.

In the call, Nina can be heard telling the emergency dispatch operator that everyone was hiding behind desks and that a woman was “passed out” near the front door of the spa.

Robert Aaron Long, 21, of Woodstock, Georgia was arrested on Tuesday night (March 16) for the shootings and was charged with eight counts of murder and one count of aggravated assault, according to law enforcement officials in Atlanta and Cherokee County, about 40 miles (64 km) north of the state capital. Long was being held in Cherokee County.

Authorities said on Wednesday that Long indicated he had sexual addiction issues and may have not been motivated by racial hatred.
