Officer Brian Murray reported that hotel workers at the Motel 6 on Jefferson Boulevard had no idea when someone shot a hole in a third floor window at the hotel on March 2. The manager told Murray a housekeeper noticed some broken glass on the ground behind building H and looked up to find the hole in the glass three stories up. Murray said it appeared that the bullet came from outside of the hotel and apparently from some distance because of the angle and height of the hole in the window. He said he couldn’t find a bullet and none of the guests recalled hearing a shot or seeing anything out of the ordinary. No one could recall the last time they noticed the window without a hole, making it difficult to estimate a timeframe for the incident.

He said he activated his directional to pull into the Walgreens at Warwick Avenue and the other vehicle followed him into the lot. He said the male passenger in the car got out and ran toward him and he exited his car to engage in a fight. He said the two females in the car got out and joined in the assault and his shirt and sweatshirt came off. He said the attackers then got up and grabbed his shirt and sweatshirt and left the scene.
