USA-SPA SHOOTING - A deadly shooting spree at a health spa in an Atlanta suburb -- in what appears to be a murder-suicide.

Four people were found shot to death when officers arrived on the scene at a spa in Norcross, Georgia. Police say a fifth victim was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Norcross Police Chief Warren Summers described the incident caught on a security camera.


"It appears that he walked in, had some conversation with one of the victims and the shooting started. Then he goes off (security) camera as some point, and we don't see exactly what went on there, but then he comes back on camera and we know it's a murder-suicide from there."

Police continue to search for a motive.
