HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An argument outside the lobby of a posh Uptown hotel erupted into gunfire Sunday that ended with one man shot multiple times and another in police custody.

It happened at the Post Oak Hotel some time before 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

Two hotel guests got into an argument when one of them began shooting, according to Houston police. The victim, from Louisiana, was struck multiple times.

The suspect, a man from Georgia, was taken into custody with the help of hotel staff, according to executive assistant police chief Troy Finner.

The victim was taken to Memorial Hermann Greater Heights and was in critical condition, Finner said.

Finner said investigators believe the shooting was an isolated incident.

A large number of shell casings was found in the entry way of the hotel, according to HPD. Investigators were reviewing hotel surveillance video, which captured the shooting.

The 250-room hotel, known for its upscale luxury offerings, was built by Houston billionaire Tilman Fertitta and opened in 2018.
