The employee on duty told police she heard the noise from the gunshot but was unable to locate the source.  Another guest told the clerk there were holes in his walls.  At that point the clerk found Craig entering his room and saw the hole in the TV.  She was given permission to enter the room and said they could charge him for the damages.  He told her he fired the gun and it was an accident.
