VICTORVILLE:(VVNG.com)- Deputies responded to the Travel Inn & Suites located on the 14900 block of 7th Street following a report of shooting at the business.
The alleged shooting was reported just after 12:00 A.M., on Monday, November 9, 2015.
Per scanner traffic, the suspect shot out a window near the front office and attempted to rob the victim inside. The suspect, described as a Hispanic male adult in a gray hoodie and a gray beanie took off running on foot towards Circle Drive.
