Police arrived on scene and met with two men at the motel, a 29-year-old from Grady and a 30-year-old from Highland Home, who advised that they had been approached by an unknown black male who pulled a pistol from his waistband and began firing toward them.

“The shooter then fled the scene on foot,” Barr said. “During the investigation, police found three rooms and a car that had been struck by bullets. Of the bullets that struck the rooms, one of them penetrated the structure. There were no injuries.”

The shooter was wearing black shorts, a blue shirt and red shoes. Video evidence shows the shooter accompanied by a slender black male wearing a grey hoodie with a red backpack on his back prior to the shots being fired.
