Police have arrested a woman they say was involved in the shooting of a man and woman inside their hotel early Wednesday morning.

Diamond Boykin, 26, is currently in the DeKalb County Jail facing charges of felony murder and home invasion.

The shooting happened around 1 a.m. at the America's Best Value Inn on Candler Road in Decatur.

Police say the man was in the room with his girlfriend when he heard a knock at the door. When he answered it, he was shot several times by an unidentified suspect.

The shooter is still at large. Police say Boykin knocked on the of the hotel in order to get the couple to open the door.

The incident came just hours after another shooting on Candler Road. In that incident, a man was shot and a woman who was sitting in her vehicle was struck by a stray bullet. Both were shot in the leg.

Both victims in that shooting were listed in stable condition.

If you any information on either shooting, you're asked to contact DeKalb County Police.
