Two suspects are in custody after a shooting at a hotel in northeast Oklahoma City.

Elijah Bonner, 18, was arrested Monday night on two complaints of shooting with intent to kill. A juvenile was also arrested.

Police were initially called to a disturbance, but when they arrived at Oxford Inn on NE 50 Street and Lincoln Boulevard, officers heard gunfire. The shots were aiming at a burgundy car which officers saw speed out of the hotel parking lot. 

Police say multiple shots were fired. When officers located the car, they found two victims inside that were shot. The victims drove from the hotel to OU Medical Center. 

After several interviews with witnesses and potential suspects, Bonner and a 15-year-old were arrested. 

The two victims do not have life-threatening injuries. 

Oxford Inn management would not comment on the incident.
