Clearwater police have found shell casings, bullet slugs and blood at a Ramada Inn. Meanwhile, officials at Mease Dunedin Hospital have reported treating an uncooperative gunshot victim.

CLEARWATER — Police are investigating an apparent shooting at the Ramada Inn on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard early Tuesday.

Upon arriving at the scene just after 3:45 a.m., officers found several shell casings, spent bullet slugs and blood, police said. It seemed all people involved in the shooting had left the area.

While investigators searched for evidence at the hotel at 2061 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd., officials at Mease Dunedin Hospital reported treating an uncooperative gunshot victim with life-threatening injuries.

He was in stable condition but had not yet spoken to detectives, Clearwater public safety spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts said Tuesday afternoon. It was not clear whether he was injured in the hotel shooting.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
