Police are investigating after a bullet was found embedded in a second-floor room of a Portland, Maine, hotel over the weekend.

The Portland Press Herald reports two guests staying at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel on Commercial Street alerted police to the bullet on Friday night.

There were no reports of shots fired in the area.

Police say the bullet was likely fired from outside the hotel and then entered the room through a window. Investigators are trying to determine the bullet's trajectory.

Lt. Robert Doherty says it doesn't appear that the guests were targets of a shooting.

No injuries were reported and the hotel remained opened.
