(CNN) – Despite a head injury, our cameras saw the shooting victim conscious and talking in the back of an ambulance before paramedics rushed her to the hospital.

Sources say she was grazed by a bullet after a gun accidentally went off during a wedding party saturday night.

“That discharge resulted one individual being struck and in addition there were 3 other people struck by debris, marble and tile.”

Police would not elaborate on the circumstances of the shooting… But say they’re questioning three people, including this man who was kept in the back of a police cruiser during the police investigation.

“We were just walking in and I heard a gunshot.  I thought something got dropped.”

Guests at the Waldorf Astoria – the same hotel the president stays at when he visits New York City – were stunned by the police activity.

“It’s very dramatic to see all of the scene.”

This is one of the most famous hotels in the world.

“And that’s why we chose to stay here.”

“We’re absolutely astounded to arrive here and find out there’s been a shot, etc etc.”

It is unclear if the man with the gun will face charges. Those injured were treated at local hospitals.

In a statement, the Waldorf Astoria said: “The safety and security of our guests and team members are the hotel’s top priorities.”

The hotel said it is cooperating with investigators.
