    Police are investigating after a spray of bullets struck a New Haven hotel early Sunday, one of them piercing the wall and lodging in a headboard above a sleeping guest.

    It happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday at the Premier Hotel and Suites on Long Wharf Drive. Police said a hotel security guard heard a group of men and women arguing, then gunfire rang out.

    No one was hurt, but one of the bullets went through the hotel wall and narrowly missed the head of a sleeping guest.

    A resident's car and a state Department of Children and Families van were also struck. Police said a bullet shattered the rear window of the DCF vehicle and left a hole in the windshield.

    Witnesses told police they saw a group of three to five men running from the area, along with a small white car with several women inside.

    Anyone with information should contact police.
