Until emergency personnel came, they began life-saving efforts. KATV said responders also sent him to a local hospital, where they declared him dead.
Meanwhile, a published article in Arkansas Democrat-Gazette said officers have identified the guy who was murdered in a hotel shooting on Monday night.
As of the time of writing, the authorities are still conducting an investigation. Officers will provide additional information as soon as it becomes available.
Other Super 8 Motel Shooting Incidents
This is n0t the first time the same hotel has been on the scene of a shooting incident. Prosecutors say a 25-year-old man fatally shot another man at a northeast-side hotel in March after a disagreement.
Officials arrested Cassidy Charleston a day after they found 27-year-old Cody Campbell with numerous gunshot wounds in the lobby of a Super 8 hotel in the 7200 block of East 82nd Street just before 4 a.m. on March 15.
According to court documents IndyStar obtained, authorities charged Charleston with murder and for carrying a firearm without a license four days after the incident. Indianapolis police said responders transported Campbell to a hospital, where he eventually died.
Surveillance footage from the event shows Campbell arriving at the hotel room door about 3:48 a.m., according to a probable cause affidavit. He dashed leaving the hotel room. A little over three minutes later, he fell in the same location. Witnesses saw blood outside the room.
Charleston subsequently confessed to shooting Campbell after the guy assaulted his sister, according to police. However, a lady in the room told police that she and Charleston’s sister had been “play fighting” before the incident, and Campbell grabbed one of the ladies by the hair as she attempted to leave.
Police said Campbell did not harm the woman. There had been no physical confrontation at all previous to her exiting the room.
Investigators found several discharged rounds and 9mm cartridge casings in the room. The suspect had allegedly broken the bathroom door and allegedly smashed the TV.
According to the affidavit, the suspect shot Campbell five times during the incident in the leg, hip, the lower left side of his chest, and twice in the back.
