A trio of gun-toting suspects beat a hotel employee and repeatedly shot her co-worker at a Northwest Oklahoma City hotel early Wednesday morning.

The incident occurred just after 1:30 a.m. inside the Budget Lodge at 11900 I-35 Service Road. The suspects smashed through a window into the front office of the hotel. 

Police say the intruders beat a female employee, who had tried to hide. 

The hotel owner tells News 9 the robbers then shot a one of his family members in the arm and in his chest. Still that victim was able to call 911. The owner says his relative is in 'stable condition' at a local hospital. 

Police flashed four surveillance photos of the three hooded suspects on OCPD’s Facebook Page all day Wednesday.

“You get a pretty decent look them,” said Police Spokesman Gary Knight. “These three guys, it is imperative that we get them identified because they’re going to hurt or kill somebody out there."
