Police say infant, toddler found shot to death in South Texas hotel room; suspect in custody
LAREDO, Texas (AP) ' Police say two young children have been shot to death in a South Texas hotel room and a suspect is in custody.
Laredo police spokesman Joe Baeza says an infant and toddler were killed in Tuesday's shooting at the Holiday Inn-Civic Center.
Baeza says police went to the hotel around midday after receiving a call suggesting the children and their mother could be in trouble. After knocking on the hotel room door and identifying themselves as police, officers heard several immediate shots. Some were through the door.
Baeza says officers cleared the hotel, then entered the room and arrested a man inside.
He says the children's mother has not been located and the man's relationship to the family wasn't immediately clear.
