A shooting left one dead and four injured on Thursday at a hotel in a residential area of ​​the American capital, local police reported. Five people with gunshot wounds were taken to hospital after an exchange of fire at a hotel chain early Thursday, police said on Twitter.

“A female victim who was in critical condition has been pronounced dead,” added Washington police, who cordoned off the perimeter for a few hours and opened an investigation. Police were called to the scene around 3:30 a.m. local time when shots rang out during a party, in a hotel room in a privileged area of ​​Washington, hosting many embassies, detailed several media.

“We have already had complaints from neighbors about this hotel. We have received complaints about drug-related activities,” said Duncan Bedlion, a police officer, on a local channel. So far, no suspects have been identified.
