Five men and women were injured in the shooting, Second District Commander Duncan Bedlion said. Some were taken to hospitals by ambulance and others took themselves.
One woman who works at a bakery nearby described the scene.
“I saw a person on a gurney coming out of the hotel getting put into an ambulance that then got escorted by a police officer. As I was locking up my bike, more and more cops just kept coming,” she said.
