Police say a man was shot and killed at the hotel hosting the U.S. women’s soccer team during the Olympic qualifying tournament.

Police were called to the Sheraton Wall Centre at about 8:45 p.m. Tuesday and found the body of a man dead from apparent gunshot wounds in a restaurant at the hotel.

U.S. Soccer Federation spokesman Neil Buethe said the American delegation was safe and that none of its members witnessed the shooting.

Goalie Hope Solo did tweet about it: “Saved by our instant yoga session. Was about to walk to starbucks when all hell broke loose in the lobby of our hotel! Life is precious…”

Police had not identified the victim and had no information on a suspect.

The U.S. team begins play against the Dominican Republic on Friday.
