Officers from the Dublin Police Department responded to a report of a fight at 1:28 a.m. May 8 at a hotel on the 5000 block of Tuttle Crossing Boulevard.

A caller told police two men were assaulting another man, and that one had a firearm.

Based on the caller’s description of the three men, police identified one, a 31-year-old Texas man, as the victim. He told them the other two men had punched and kicked him in the head.

The man said the other two men were coworkers.

The assault stemmed from an argument about one the men having a firearm, which resulted in the men being asked to leave the leave the hotel, according to the police report.
