Man Arrested Following Hotel Shooting

A 25-year-old Glendale man was arrested this week after allegedly firing several gunshots inside of a Glendale hotel room.
The Glendale Police Department reported receiving the shots-fired call at around 7 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 15. Multiple people reported that there was yelling and several gunshots fired on the fourth floor of the Glenmark Hotel, on the corner of Brand Boulevard and Dryden Street. A man was seen fleeing with a vehicle in the hotel’s parking lot afterward, according to GPD.
Surveillance footage showed a man draw a handgun inside the hotel and fire several shots both into the floor and into an empty room before running to the vehicle, police said. Responding officers gathered spent shell casings at the scene and noted a shattered glass door and bullet holes at the crime scene.
Nobody was struck by bullets.
Officers apprehended the man shortly afterward, GPD said, when the same vehicle seen leaving the hotel collided with a building at the intersection of Brand and Mountain Street. Though the motorist fled from the vehicle, officers apprehended him afterward without incident, the police department said.
The department said it expects to charge the man with illegal discharge of a firearm.
