Around 9:15 p.m. on Aug. 29, Gwinnett County police said they found the body of Ivan Pastor-Vital, who died from apparent gunshot wounds, in a room on the third floor. Investigators said hotel surveillance video showed four people leaving the room where the shooting took place. They have since been identified as Geraldy Gomez, 24, and Jonathan Gonzalez, 26. Their whereabouts and the whereabouts of their two children is still not known.

Police said Geraldy Gomez has an active warrant for drug possession while Jonathan Gonzalez has a prior misdemeanor warrant for probation violation on a traffic offense.
