Hotel guests: Shot accidentally fired


St. Joseph County Police collected two handguns as evidence after hotel guests claimed a shot was accidentally fired late Tuesday night.

Officers were called out to the Suburban Extended Stay Hotel in the 52000 block of State Road 933 just before midnight.

Assistant Chief Bill Thompson said a bullet apparently traveled through the floor, into a room below and became lodged in a chair. No one was injured.

Investigators also took a casing as evidence.

The hotel guests have not been identified.
