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.
