Two shot in lobby of Hilton near JFK Airport
QUEENS (WABC) -- A large number of suspects were apprehended after walking into a Queens hotel and opening fire on in the lobby.
The victim was shot in the lobby of the Hilton Garden Inn, just north of Kennedy Airport, just before 12:45 p.m. this afternoon.
The gunman did not try to flee, instead turning the gun on himself and pulling the trigger. Officials say a confrontation broke out inside the hotel before the shooting broke out.
Four other suspects were quickly caught after fleeing the scene.
The victims were initially reported to be Russian nationals.
