It was a scary close call for a guest at the Value Place Hotel Thursday night after police say someone fired a shot from a fourth floor room into a second room.

A woman was inside when a bullet went through the wall and into her hotel room, but she was unharmed.

Springs police were called shortly after, at 7:20 p.m., but when they got to the Airport Creek Point, the suspect had left the hotel.

An officer on nearby Airport Road saw someone matching the suspect's description at a Loaf 'n Jug and tried to contact him. The suspect allegedly sped off, but police say he was quickly caught and arrested. He has been identified as Clinton Dansby, 25, and faces charges of illegal discharge of a firearm.

Police say they detained a second person, 30-year-old Laura Mounts, and charged her with false reporting. She was then released.
