Upon arriving at the scene, emergency personnel discovered Satyen Naik inside the motel, critically injured with gunshot wounds. Despite immediate efforts to save him, Naik was later pronounced dead at Carteret Health Care.

The situation took an even more tragic turn when the suspected attacker, Troy Kellam (59), was found locked in a room within the hostess's home. Chief Lewis explained, "It was suspected that he had locked himself in the room, after which we informed the Special Response Team (SRT) and sought help to rescue the person locked in the room."
