In Brief: Five killed in murder-suicide
Authorities say five people are dead in an apparent murder-suicide at a suburban Atlanta spa.
Norcross police spokesman Captain Brian Harr said last night that officers found the bodies after responding to a call reporting a person shot at the Su Jung Health Sauna.
Harr said a preliminary investigation indicates the person who did the shooting was among the dead. He was unable to release the identification of the dead and did not immediately know the relationships between the person who did the shooting and the victims.
AEG dismissed from lawsuit
A US judge granted a motion to dismiss concert promoter AEG Live from a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by Michael Jackson's father.
It was reported that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos agreed with AEG attorneys who said Joe Jackson should have joined a separate suit filed by his wife, Katherine.
The judge said that to allow Joe Jackson's suit against AEG Live to go forward would "allow the heirs of a decedent to file as many suits as there are heirs".
