HOLBROOK - Suffolk police say they have identified a woman who was fatally shot at a Holbrook motel early Saturday morning.
The woman has been identified as 24-year-old Shalece Cunningham.
Police say the shooting happened at the MacArthur Inn motel on Veterans Highway just before 5 a.m. They say they received a call about a shooting in one of the rooms from the motel's manager.
Officers who responded to the scene say that when they knocked on the door to the room, the alleged gunman, Stoker Olukotun Williams, opened it and began firing at them. The officers dove for cover behind vehicles that were parked in front of the room. The suspect was shot in the arm during the crossfire.
The alleged gunman ran from the room into a patch of nearby woods, where police caught up with him a short time later.
Inside the motel room, police say they found Cunningham with a fatal gunshot wound to the face. They say she was shot at point-blank range. Two of the woman's acquaintances were also in the room, but they were unharmed.
