AMARILLO - Authorities in Amarillo are investigating a Christmas Day fatal shooting at a motel.
Police were summoned to the motel along Interstate 40 after receiving a call about shots fired and someone screaming. Officers found a man dead outside a room and then summoned a SWAT team to deal with other people still inside the room.
Lt. Erick Bohannon, coordinator of the special crimes unit for Potter and Randall counties, tells the Amarillo Globe-News the people came out of the room without further incident. They were detained by authorities but no one was immediately arrested.
Police wouldn't say how many people were rounded up. They say the name of the shooting victim is being withheld until relatives can be notified.
