Last night the entire hotel was evacuated while dozens of of police vehicles, SWAT included, blocked off all street access. I have found no news of this and the hotel people are not giving no information on this. Anybody heard of this? I found no news articles on it and considering it lasted about 6hrs or more I would have thought there would be something on the air about this. Is this typical of this place?

A man is believed to have shot himself at a Capitol Heights Comfort Inn early Sunday morning as a Prince Georgeís County SWAT team waited outside the hotel, police said.
Police received a call from the now-deceased manís family around 9:40 a.m. Saturday. The family member said the man intended to harm himself and provided the room number.
When police arrived, they knocked on the manís hotel room door, but retreated when he fired a shot through the door, police said. The officers called for an emergency barricade and waited for support to arrive.
The SWAT team waited outside the hotel until around 2 a.m., when they made an attempt to get into the room in which the man had barricaded himself.
When police entered the room, they found the man dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
The man was not identified.

I was checking in the hotel and while I was in the process of doing that my family was escorted out. I was also one of the people who had 8:00am was raising hell in the lobby about getting a refund because we couldn't get back in the hotel to stay there.
