Police say 42-year-old Tolga Azaz, of Mt. Sinai, New York, was taken into custody Friday evening. Investigators say he had blocked the door to his room with a piece of furniture after firing the shots.

Officials say Azaz was asleep when security personnel entered the room and assaulted a female EMT when he woke up.

Investigators say they recovered three handguns from Azaz's room.

Azaz faces weapons and assault charges. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
