Police say the suspect entered the party suite and began arguing with family members. That's when a family member intervened and asked the suspect to step outside.

“As they left the room walking down the hallway apparently an argument ensued, our defendant pulls out a gun and fires one time striking the victim in the face,” said Lieutenant Walker.

The suspect then fled the hotel and ran across the parking lot as police arrived on the scene and began the search.
