MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police said a shooting overnight Wednesday that injured one person escalated to a shootout with police after the suspect locked himself inside a hotel room and fired shots at officers from inside.

Police said it happened at 1:15 a.m. at Real Value Inn at 3896 Lamar Ave. After rounds of shots, officers retrieved the suspect and took him into custody.

Memphis police said Wednesday night that the suspect, Marvin Conley, 38, is charged with 35 counts of attempted first-degree murder, convicted felon in possession of a handgun, and employment of a handgun in the commission of a felony.
