Body Discovered on Floor in Fort Worth Motel Room

One person is in custody after a body was found on the floor at a Fort Worth motel Tuesday night, police say.

Police were called at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday to a report of a shooting at the Crest Motel, located along the 7600 bock of Camp Bowie West Boulevard. The caller told officers there was a dead person in the one of the rooms, police said.

Investigators said police detained a suspicious person, identified Wednesday as 19-year-old Salomon Sandoval, in the parking lot of the motel. Sandoval had a knife and handcuffs at the time, police said.

It isn't clear if charges have been filed. Police are investigating.

Editor's Note: Initial information released by Fort Worth police indicated that the body was discovered in a bathtub, wrapped in plastic. Police said Wednesday morning that was not the case.
