One person was killed and three injured after a robbery-turned shooting inside a room of a Lake Highlands motel early Friday.

Just before 1:30 a.m., Police say at least one armed man entered the Motel 6 near 635 and Plano Rd and kicked in the door of a room before opening fire.

Police are investigating the circumstances, but witnesses told them it started as a robbery attempt.

It is unclear if the suspect or suspects knew the victims or what was actually taken from them.
