"Officers discovered one victim in his hotel room who had sustained multiple stab wounds,'' Ineguez said in a statement.

Paramedics took the man to a hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, Ineguez said.

An investigation identified Lee Simpson as the suspect. Officers conducted a search for suspect,'' Ineguez said. "This is believed to be an isolated incident as suspect Simpson and the victim are known to each other.
