Four people are in custody after a woman was found dead in a Bloomington hotel earlier this week.

Bloomington Police said officers responded to a report of an unresponsive woman in a room at La Quinta on Nicollet Avenue at about 11:45 a.m. on July 12. Officers arrived and determined the woman had been dead for some time and showed visible signs of trauma.

The department said an autopsy revealed the victim suffered a gunshot wound to the upper body. She was identified as 39-year-old Jennifer Ann Swaggert, of Minneapolis.
