A person came into the Red Lion Hotel early Saturday morning, brandished a handgun and took money from an employee at the front desk, according to the Billings Police Department. 

The male suspect entered the building at 1223 Mullowney Lane sometime after 3 a.m.

The woman working at the front desk was not injured, said BPD Sgt. Shane Shelden. The suspect had his face covered. He left on foot with an unknown amount of money, Shelden said. 

No shots were fired during the incident.

Speaking at close to 4 a.m., Shelden said police were continuing to investigate the incident. More information would be available later in a press release, Shelden said.
