Major Police presence outside Super 8 Hotel in Sulphur - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Major Police presence outside Super 8 Hotel in Sulphur

There was major police presence outside the Super 8 Hotel on Mallard Street in Sulphur late Saturday night. 

Several witnesses told us they heard what they thought were gunshots just before 9 o'clock. Shortly after, several hotel guests were asked to evacuate. At least one person was taken away by ambulance, according to witnesses. There is no word on their injuries. 

At least 10 police cars, including Sulphur and Lake Charles Police were on scene.

According to Sulphur Police, they were assisting Lake Charles Police with an investigation. We've put several calls into Lake Charles Police, but have yet to receive a call back. 

As of 10:30 p.m., three police cars remained outside the hotel. The hotel staff declined to comment on the incident. However, they did tell us the entire hotel was not evacuated and that it only impacted a few guests, all of whom are back in their rooms.

We'll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
