One man suffered non-life threatening injuries in a shooting outside a Windsor hotel on Wednesday.

At 11:30 p.m., patrol officers reponded to the 2100 block of Division Road for a report of gunshots fired, police said in a news release on Thursday.

Police learned a suspect vehicle had been in front of a hotel in the area when shots were fired from inside the vehicle. The vehicle then drove off.

An exterior glass door to the hotel had been shattered, possibly by gunfire, police determined.

Officers spoke with numerous hotel occupants and learned that a person who may have been injured had left the hotel before police arrived.
