Authorities are asking the public to report any suspicious activity or people they might have experienced in the area. No information was provided about a suspected shooter.
“Detectives are still trying to determine who is the victim and who is the suspect,” Isaac stated. “We are not labeling anyone as a victim or suspect at this time.”
At the same motel, a man was arrested following a SWAT standoff in May. Clayton police were originally investigating alleged criminal activity at a nearby abandoned motel when two gunshots went off at the American Inn and Suites. Police said they then saw Kendrick Thomas walking across the parking lot with a gun.
After Thomas was taken into custody, authorities stated that they found several dogs, a snake and a turtle in his motel room. Animal Control responded to pick up the animals.
In July 2020, a man was shot at the motel while inside his car, according to police. He then drove through a fence and crashed into the extended-stay hotel next door.
