"Officers responded; we set up a perimeter. Detectives were still on duty; they came out right away," Sgt. Bill Wyatt said.

Witnesses reported seeing the suspect run north from the front entrance of the hotel at 3051 S. 34th St., but police don't know if he got into a vehicle or continued on foot, Wyatt said.
