A single person has dangerous injuries after a shooting inside the Sheraton Hotel on the Nation Club Plaza.

“Someone came up … he was real anxious to pay and seemed like a couple of seconds later we heard what sounded like a crash like a metal tray had been dropped. A couple of seconds later, we heard it again and then some cries and then we saw people running so we all ran out through, I guess, the kitchen and went through the stairs and ended up going out the service entrance,” he stated.
