LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Police are investigating a shooting that took place inside a Lawrence motel.

Officers were called to a Motel 6 at 1130 N. 3rd Street around 11:30 p.m. Saturday on a report of a shooting. Upon arrival, police found three male victims suffering gunshot wounds.

One victim, identified as 23-year-old Cameron A. Hooks, died of his injuries. Two others were transported to hospitals with what police called "possible life-threatening injuries."

Witnesses said it all started with a lot of screaming and people running down the hallways on the third floor.

One woman staying at the motel said she heard what sounded like a woman screaming, and crying for help.

"Just a great big huge 'boom.' I didn't associate it with a gunshot; I never even thought about it. But then there was noise and screaming, and 'help me.' I just made sure the door was locked a stayed in."

Investigators transported three men in their 20s to area hospitals, where Hooks died.

"The hotel was very busy. There were lots of people in the area when it happened," said Sgt. Amy Rhoades with Lawrence Police Department.

Police did not release any suspect information at this time.

The incident is still under investigation.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Lawrence Police Department at (785) 832-7509.
