Sheriff’s Captain: Spa Shooting Suspect Was Having ‘Really Bad Day’

During a news conference the day after the killings, Capt. Jay Baker of the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office told reporters that suspected shooter Robert Aaron Long, 21, told investigators he has “sexual addiction” issues and targeted the spas to “take out that temptation.”

Considering the death toll, which included six Asians, many people on Twitter called out Baker for his choice of words. 

Some people pointed out that there are better ways to deal with a “really bad day” than multiple shootings.

Baker did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
