Zahn was one of four people inside the hotel room at the time. 

When police checked their identification, they realized Zahn had a warrant out for his arrest for a parole weapons violation.

The officer chased Zahn for roughly a minute through backstreets before Zahn climbed a fence into a gated courtyard.
