Two suspects on the run after two people are shot, one killed, at DeKalb County hotel

Incident occurred Thursday morning.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — DeKalb Police confirmed one person was killed and another critically injured in what they described as a targeted shooting at the Oyo Hotel in Decatur on Thursday.

The hotel is on Wesley Club Dr. just south of I-20 off Wesley Chapel Road.

DeKalb County Police Public Information Officer Jacques Spencer told reporters the two men shot were contract workers at the hotel, who had just arrived around 9:30 a.m.

Police believe there are two possible suspects on the run. No information is being released about the suspects at the current time.

Spencer said detectives are reviewing surveillance footage and speaking to witnesses and will "hopefully be able to track these guys down rather quickly."

There was no information on a possible motive.

Police ask anyone with information about the case to contact DeKalb Police.
