ODESSA - A shooting at the MCM Elegante Hotel leaves one man dead.

Police say 29-year-old John Anthony Munroy was shot in the head just after 1 a.m. Sunday morning and was found by police lying in the southwest parking lot of the hotel.

An autopsy has been ordered and Munroy's body will be transported to Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office in Fort Worth.

Flash back to about a month ago when another shooting happened at the parking lot of the same hotel.

On October second, 18-year-old Curtis Johnson was shot in the arm and was in critical condition for days.

Police arrested 18-year-old Willie Solomon in connection with that shooting.

Police say an argument escalated to shots being fired and Solomon gave police a fake name and birthday and he wasn't alone that night.

The gun used was reported stolen out of Wichita Falls.

Sunday morning was left with questions on why the shooting occurred.

NewsWest 9 tried to get an interview with the hotel but they declined to comment.

No arrests have been made and police are asking for your help.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Odessa Crime Stoppers at 432-333-TIPS.
