A police shooting that wounded two hotel employees in southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region was caused by a dispute between two police officers and the employees, police said.

A police officer surnamed Lu allegedly shot two employees of the Hangkong Hotel in the region's capital city of Guilin on Monday after arguing with them over fees, the city's public security bureau said in a statement late Tuesday.

The injured employees were rushed to a hospital and are in stable condition, according to the statement.

Lu, a police officer with the Xingbin branch of the city of Laibin's police bureau, was taken into custody, as was his colleague, a man surnamed Huang. Both officers were involved in the dispute before the shooting occurred, the statement said.

Police vowed that they will cooperate with prosecuting authorities to investigate and deal with the case in accordance with the law.
