Channel 2′s Kristen Holloway said the back side of the motel is blocked off by crime scene tape as investigators collect evidence.

Police said at this time, it appears the suspect was not in the same room as the victim.

“We’re trying to figure out right now where the shot came from, who it came from and why it happened,” a police spokesman told Holloway.
