    I see two possibilities here...
    1- criminal/drug addict/pimp/hooker staying at the hotel that didn't want anyone they weren't expecting coming in....

    2- normal citizen with a gun for self-defense, heard door opening and opened fire.... Sadly they didn't need to use deadly force :( At no time did the sound engineer scream/holler about hurting the room occupant, at no time did he present a knife or firearm... it was just an honest mistake by the engineer and someone over reacted...

    Another good example of why training and education are so important.

    I'm going with crazed dug addict.

    But the long lasting unanswered question......Why?

    This is the world we live in. Don't look in the wrong direction or your done.

    Being at the door, with the wrong key, he presented no imminent threat.

    Another stupendous waste.

    I had a seven-year career on the road working long hours. I usually was half-dead with exhaustion by the time I got to my motel door. Twice, my keycard would not work, after repeated tries. I finally realized that I was trying to enter the wrong numbered unit!

    Another time, the dumb desk clerk gave me the right key to the right room, but it had ALREADY been rented to someone else! Surprise!

    Fortunately, no tweaker shot me......................elsullo :paranoid:
