A few years late on replying so I'm not sure if you'll ever see this, but my aunt actually told me a story about her experience there. I only just researched it and came across this post. When my aunt was a child she was staying at the Howard Johnson motel when it happened.. My grandparents and her were in their hotel room and they started hearing screaming somewhere on the floor above them. The men broke into a couples hotel room, assaulted/robbed them. My aunt and grandparents stayed put in their room with the doors locked. One of the robbers fatally shot the police officer. The men jumped off of a balcony, fled on foot and actually got away she said. A pretty sad and terrifying experience.
