DALLAS (KRLD) - A security guard was shot and killed overnight Wednesday outside of a Dallas hotel, and police say they have arrested the person responsible for the crime. 

Officers were called to the scene at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in the 9000 block of Vantage Point Drive at around 1:15 a.m.

Dallas police say 34-year old Randal Terrell has been charged with shooting 72-year-old Adane Yemru Weldekiros of Garland. 

Police say Terrell, who shot Weldekiros after the two got in an argument, stayed at the scene after the shooting. 

Officials say the incident began when Weldekiros asked Terrell to leave, which he did, but then he returned with a pistol and fired several shots.

A firearm was recovered next to Terrell in an open briefcase at the time of his arrest, and according to police, he admitted to the shooting. 

He is being held on a $100,000 bond.
