A Los Angeles man who was shot inside a hotel room at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula and died was identified Monday by the Riverside County Coroner's Office as Los Angeles resident Keith Rodman.
Rodman and the suspect, 32-year-old Wildomar resident Maria Vihanek, were in a dating relationship and had a six-month-old baby together, the sheriff's department announced Monday.
The baby was in the hotel room where Rodman was shot on Friday, but was not injured.
Vihanek will be arrested after being treated for a self-inflicted injury, authorities said.
Rodman was shot an undisclosed number of times and was able to make his way to the giant resort casino's lobby, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Mike Manning said.
Sheriff's dispatchers received a 911 call at 10:56 p.m. Friday about a bloodied man in the lobby. They also discovered Vihanek in the hotel room the shooting occurred. Rodman was taken to Temecula Valley Hospital, where he died early Saturday, the Riverside County Coroner's Office reported.
Casino spokeswoman Ciara Green couldn't recall the last time a shooting occurred there.
The casino continued its operations Friday night while sheriff's detectives conducted their investigation in the lobby area and hotel room, Green said.
