Rising R&B singer Ann Marie has been arrested in connection with a shooting that took place at her Atlanta hotel. 

According to a local CBS outlet, the shooting took place on Dec. 1 at the International Buckhead Hotel. Officers responded to a report of shots fired, and when they arrived on the scene found a 24-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
