Shots fired inside hotel in Hawaii

TEHRAN, Apr. 11 (MNA) – An armed man barricaded himself inside a hotel room at a resort in Honolulu and fired shots through the door.

No one was hurt in the gunfire late Saturday at The Kahala Hotel & Resort, Honolulu police Capt. Brian Lynch told news outlets. 

The resort said in a statement that hotel security and law enforcement evacuated the area around the room and everyone was sheltering in place.

Photos and videos shared by local media showed about 100 people locked down in the hotel's ballroom. Other images from outside the resort showed a large police presence, ABC News reported.

Lynch said police were waiting for the man to come out of the room. Police believe the man is in the military.

This is while US President Joe Biden has repeatedly criticized gun laws in the United States, calling the various shootings in the US a disgrace to his country.
