(CROWN POINT) - Prosecutors have charged a Hammond man with murder in a shooting at a Merrillville hotel on Saturday.

Authorities say Pierre Taylor and John Boyd of Gary were invited to the same party at Country Inn and Suites. When an argument broke out, Boyd and his friends left, but police say Taylor and his group followed them to the elevator and started throwing punches.

Boyd was waiting for the doors to close when Taylor allegedly fired several shots into the elevator. Four people were wounded.
