COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Police have arrested three men believed to have been involved in a fatal shooting at a downtown Colorado Springs hotel.

The Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/17huFMY) 26-year-old Christopher Ryan Dickerson, 35-year-old Swayde Monroe Jones and 27-year-old Michael David Brown are being investigated for the March 15 shooting at the Clarion Hotel. Authorities say 36-year-old James Klinger of Colorado Springs was killed.

Police announced the arrests Friday, but declined to say how the three suspects were tied to the shooting.

Court records show Jones, Dickerson and Brown have criminal histories that include drug cases and other charges. Klinger also has had multiple drug and theft charges dating to 1997.

Police say they aren't looking for anyone else in connection with the death. Court records involving the arrests have been sealed.
