WEST MEMPHIS, AR (WMC) - One person died Wednesday at the West Memphis Motel 6, according to West Memphis Police Department.

Investigators said they are trying to locate the driver of a black vehicle seen driving away from the motel around the time of the death Wednesday morning.

"I just heard a lot of shooting. I don't know where it was coming from," West Memphis resident Terry Daniels said.

Investigators said the shooting happened in the second floor of the motel. That's where investigators worked on Wednesday to gather evidence. Police said several shell casings were found in the room where the man was shot to death.
