The family members, who are both from New Mexico, said that they were in the lobby when they saw the man.
“You aren’t social distancing,” Marks said, according to the affidavit.
The man then reportedly told the pair that they had to leave before pulling out a black gun and firing several shots but luckily no one was injured.
Police arrested Marks and said he allegedly confessed to the shooting – but told detectives that he was being followed and asked the front desk to call 911, “subsequently firing four warning shots.”
An anonymous witness told the outlet that he tried to shield the tourists with his body.
