Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, first lady Yumi Hogan and Howard County Executive Calvin Ball spent Monday afternoon visiting “Korean Way” in Ellicott City and meeting with Asian American business and community leaders after incidents of violence against Asian Americans have been on the rise. Six Asian American women were gunned down at spas in Atlanta last week. A 21-year-old white man is accused of killing four people inside two Atlanta spas and four others at a massage business about 30 miles away in suburban Cherokee County on March 16. Authorities have said the man claimed to have a “sex addiction” and apparently lashed out at what he saw as sources of temptation.
