PHOENIX (AP) — Two men each are facing 11 counts of aggravated assault in connection with a fatal shooting at a downtown Phoenix hotel, according to authorities.

One man was killed and six other men and one woman suffered non-life threatening injuries in the May 9 shooting.

Court records show 21-year-old Reymel Latre and 18-year-old Camron Anderson were identified after police investigators reviewed surveillance video of the incident.

Phoenix police said 21-year-old Jaziah Shakor Causey was found dead in the elevator lobby while multiple people were shot and wounded in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Phoenix.

They say an investigation showed there was a large birthday party being held on the hotel’s seventh floor and two separate groups entered an elevator to go up to that floor.

Witnesses told police that Anderson called out to one of the men while inside the elevator before shots were fired.

Latre allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at another man inside the elevator and other people also pulled out guns and started shooting.

Police said Anderson was later located at a hospital where he was being treated for gunshot wounds.

It was unclear Wednesday if either Anderson or Latre have lawyers yet for their cases.
