KINGSPORT — A Kingsport motel owner was held at gunpoint and robbed by two men during a hold-up early Saturday morning.

According to a press release from the Kingsport Police Department, the owner, whose name was not released, of the Budget Inn at 1704 East Stone Drive, was approached at 1:25 a.m. by a white male and a black male inquiring about a room at the location’s lobby front door.

Once the owner opened the door and turned to go toward the front desk, the white male placed a gun to his head and forced him to go behind the counter and lay on the floor.
