Police said the victims are from out of state and were staying at the hotel while working in the area. Initial investigation showed a confrontation occurred in the parking lot between two groups who may have known each other. The members of the other group left the scene before officers arrived.
Detectives from Braintree police and State Police are investigating, along with State Police Crime Scene Services. Braintree police urge anyone with information to contact detectives at 781-794-8620.
