Chicago — A suspect is in custody after an 18-year-old woman was shot inside a West Loop hotel room on Saturday morning. The incident may be domestic-related.

Chicago police responded to calls of a person shot in the Hampton Inn, 116 North Jefferson, around 11:35 a.m. and found the victim in a fourth-floor lobby area. She was taken in fair condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to her torso.

According to initial information from the scene, investigators determined that the woman had been shot in a room on the 12th-floor and then made her way downstairs after being injured. Officers recovered a gun and a shell casing from the room and found bullet damage in the window.

The suspected shooter was taken to Area Three headquarters for questioning.
