SEOUL, March 17 (Yonhap) -- Four people of Korean descent were among those killed in a series of deadly shootings in the U.S. city of Atlanta, the foreign ministry said Wednesday.
South Korea's Consulate General in Atlanta sent consular staff members to check if there were any other Korean causalities in the shootings, the ministry said.
At least eight people were killed in the shootings at three spas that took place within hours of one another Tuesday (U.S. time), according to media reports. A 21-year-old suspect has been taken into custody.
