Gulfport Police Department’s incoming chief, Adam Cooper, stated that the suspect hid inside a Gulfport convenience following leaving a stolen vehicle.

Gulfport is located west of Biloxi, the city where the Broadway Inn Express motel shooting happened.

After investigation, authorities identified the shooting victims as; Mohammad Moeini, 51; the hotel’s owner, Laura Lehman, 61; and Chad Green, 55, both employees. Both the employees used to live and work at the motel.

An eye witness from the shooting scene detailed the chaos at the motel, with people frantically trying to escape, WLOX-TV reported.

It was further reported that another man was shot to death while carjacking after shooting at the motel. He was shifted to the hospital for surgery but died there. He has been identified as William Waltman, 52.

Police released teargas into the store where the suspect was holed up. They initially tried to negotiate with him outside the store but got no response. When they got inside, they found him dead, said Cooper.

An autopsy has been scheduled for the deceased suspect to determine the death cause.
