A witness said a "hysterical" woman was inside the room where the shots were heard, WFAA-TV reporter Tanya Eiserer said. Before shots were fired, a man was reportedly seen acting “oddly” outside the room.
A person on a stretcher was seen being loaded into an ambulance, which was then followed by police.
A witness recorded video of a fiery blast from the hotel room. Another witness can be heard speculating that the source of the explosion was a flash bang grenade used by SWAT police.
The video contains graphic language.
