Police: Curious hotel guest checks on gunfire, hit by bullet
HOMEWOOD, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say curiosity about gunfire coming from a hotel parking lot in Alabama left a guest wounded when he went to check on the noise.
Police in Homewood say a 36-year-old man from South Carolina was hit by a stray bullet when the hotel guest heard the gunfire early Sunday in the parking lot and went to his third-floor window to look out.
News media reports say the man was taken to a hospital, but the wound wasn’t considered life-threatening.
Police say there apparently was a fight in the parking lot of a La Quinta hotel, and that bullets from the confrontation hit multiple parked vehicles.
Police questioned three people, but released them all.
