Police said the initial investigation indicates the three men were part of a group from out of state that were staying at the hotel for work when a confrontation occurred in the parking lot between two groups that “may have known each other.” The identities of other people involved who left the scene before police arrived remains under investigation.

Braintree police are urging anyone with information to contact detectives at 781-794-8620.
