Authorities in metro Atlanta are investigating whether shootings at three massage parlors that left multiple people dead are connected. Two of the shootings were at spas across the street from each other in northeast Atlanta. The other was in Cherokee County to the northwest of the city. Officials in each jurisdiction said there were no immediate indications of motive, and it is unclear whether the shootings were related. 

Deputies were called to Young’s Asian Massage near Acworth, Georgia, for reports of a shooting. Responding deputies found five people with gunshot wounds. Two people were pronounced dead at the scene, and three were transported to a hospital, where two more died.

Atlanta police responded to a robbery call at the Golden Massage Spa and found three people dead. While there, police received another call of shots fired directly across the street at the Aroma Therapy Spa, where they found one person dead. 

A suspect in the Cherokee County shootings was taken into custody around 8:30 p.m.- about 3 1/2 hours after the killings. The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office identified him as Robert Aaron Long, 21, of Woodstock.

This is your market update for the day

As investors anticipate updated economic and interest rate forecasts from the Fed today, stocks held steady. Futures tied to each of the major benchmarks remained, for the most part, unchanged, with the exception of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which was poised for a 25-point opening gain. 

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell will also offer remarks today.

“There’s this assumption [Powell’s going to be dovish tomorrow,” said Peter Boockvar, of Bleakley Advisory Group. “With another round of spending, it’s hard for him not to be dovish. They are definitely afraid of scaring the market. They’re afraid of disrupting the recovery.”

As of yesterday, the 10-year Treasury yield held its position over 1.6%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell almost 130 points, and the S&P 500 decreased by 0.16. The Nasdaq Composite, meanwhile, increased 0.09%.

The legal rights of robots have expanded, at least in this state

In the latest change in the ever-evolving relationship between robots and humans, autonomous delivery robots will now be classified as pedestrians due to new state law. 

This new law will give them the ability to legally maneuver sidewalks and roadways in the same manner as you would when out and about. 

In 2017, engineers at MIT created an autonomous robot that used socially aware navigation, to teach the AV to essentially follow “the same rules as everyone else” regarding personal space and expectations about where to walk, one of the researchers said in a statement at the time.

This does call into question the legality and liability of damaging one in an accident as well as how integration into our roads will play out.

It’s St. Patrick’s Day! Here’s what you never knew about him

Did you know that St. Patrick may not have actually been Irish?

Or that his name wasn’t even Patrick?

His real name was Maewyn Succat and he was probably Welsh or Scottish. He first came to Ireland in dire circumstances, having been sold into slavery and kept bound for six years in Ireland. As all dashing outlaws must, he eventually escaped to become a monk in France.

Traditionally, the event we now celebrate in St. Patrick’s name occurred somewhere around 432 or 433 AD. By this time, he had returned to Ireland and set about driving out the snakes. According to legend, he even got a bit too enthusiastic and broke his drum in the process. Luckily, there was a quick fix; a little divine intervention can go a long way.
