A man visiting Chico on business was shot in the head after four suspects entered his room on Saturday morning.

He has since been treated and released from Enloe Medical Center. The incident occurred around 1:20 a.m. at the Motel 6 on Manzanita Court.

According to the victim, he and a co-worker were in Chico on a business trip and had left the door slightly ajar while they talked early Saturday morning.

Around 1:20 a.m., four suspects described as two Hispanic men and two women entered the room holding guns. One fired a shot at the victim that grazed his head. The victim did not suffer any serious injuries.

The suspects left in a vehicle by the time officers arrived at the scene. The two men and women were described to be between 20 and 30 years old.

Anyone with more information about the shooting is asked to call the Chico Police Department.
