A Pennsylvania man who was visiting his Marist College freshman daughter over the weekend and staying in the Marriott Courtyard hotel where a homeless felon allegedly gunned down another dad Sunday said it could've happened to anyone and that he has new concerns about his daughter's safety. "You feel so bad for that family," John Bucsek told Fox News Digital Wednesday.  "Never do you think of something like that happening." Bucsek was a guest at the Courtyard Marriott hotel in Poughkeepsie, New York, over the weekend when a gunman opened fire in the lobby, fatally striking another Marist parent.  "I was far enough away where I didn't hear bang, bang, bang, bang, bang," he said. "I just heard this commotion." Poughkeepsie police arrested Roy Johnson Jr., 35, and Devin Taylor, 26, at the scene.The victim, Paul Kutz, 53, was rushed to a hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead. "There's been a few shootings in Poughkeepsie lately, and we were really unaware of that," Bucsek said. "We know it as a little town on the river."

"There's no security there, and you know how kids are – they forget the room key; they prop the door open; most people leave their dorm rooms unlocked during the day," he said.
