Man Arrested After Shooting At Trump Doral Golf Club

Police responding overnight to a call of shots fired at President Donald Trump's golf resort in Doral, Florida, took one person into custody. Officials said he was taken to the hospital with a broken bone. The man also reportedly was yelling about Trump and placed an American flag over the lobby counter.

The Doral Police Department said there were "no shooting victims", but have provided no other details.

"This man was prepared for struggle, he was ready for our officers to return in", Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez informed Miami radio station 610 WIOD.

A police chief says the shooting suspect at the Trump National Doral resort in south Florida tried to "ambush" officers, but lost a gunfight with them. Police were preparing a search warrant to enter Oddi's house, Perez said.

The incident at the club, owned by United States president Donald Trump and the host venue for a World Golf Championship between 2007 and 2016, occurred in the early hours of this morning.

After Doral and Miami-Dade police officers arrived and encountered the gunman, shots were fired by officers from both agencies, striking the suspect multiple times. The man - who is not believed to be a guest at the resort - had draped an American flag over a counter, Perez told reporters.

So far, the suspect has not been identified, and his motive is unknown.

Eric Trump hailed the officers' response in a Twitter submit Friday morning.

"Our officers responded with the assistance of Miami Dade", Organvidez said.

An investigation is underway, and will include the FBI, the Secret Service and local police.

The golf resort previously known as the Doral Resort & Spa was purchased by the Trump Organization in 2012. According to CBS News, they confirmed that no "protectees were in the Miami region at the time of the incident".
