PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix say they have arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of a woman at a hotel.

They said probable cause was developed to arrest 21-year-old Dante Barnes and he's been booked into jail on suspicion of murder and other felony charges.

It was unclear Sunday if Barnes has a lawyer yet. Police said officers responded to the hotel around 11 p.m. Saturday.

Several people were inside a hotel room when two men began arguing, according to police who said the argument reportedly became physical at some point and shots were fired.

Police said a woman was one of the occupants in the room and she was struck by the gunfire during the fight.
