Guests at the Marriott Hotel downtown reported hearing multiple gunshots about 9:30 p.m. Saturday night, but, at last report on KTHV, police had found no evidence that anyone was hurt.

One guest reported hearing three gunshots. Police checked the 17th floor after the report. KATV said police found some spent shells.

One report said the shooting arose from a "party" on the floor.

The police Monday released a report on the incident. Witnesses reported hearing loud arguments and gunshots and — through door peepholes — saw two groups of males fleeing down separate stairwells. A police search found no one harmed, but multiple walls were hit by gunshots.

Evidence gathered by police included multiple spent and live 9mm rounds, two mobile phones, a lighter and a set of headphones.
