Motel Owner Attacked
BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) -- The owner of a motel in Burlington remains hospitalized after being attacked and shot by three men who robbed him.
The 63-year-old owner and manager of the Lincolnville Motel was severely beaten and shot once in the leg with a handgun.
The owner's name hasn't been released, but was awakened at 4 early Monday morning by someone outside the motel who said they wanted to rent a room.
When the owner unlocked the door, the men rushed in and attacked him.
The owner sustained severe injuries and could only give police limited information. Detectives plan to interview him again when he's off medication.
