The Meridian Police Department is investigating an attempted robbery at the Holiday Inn Express around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The suspect was described as a black male, who entered the hotel with a shotgun and demanded money.
Police report the clerk fled the office and the robber ran off without any money.
"The black male was wearing a toboggan, a sweater with gray patches, and a surgical mask on his face to cover his identity," said MPD spokesman Dean Harper. "He would be charged with attempted armed robbery, if we are able to identify the subject."
