Suspect shot after firing handgun in Trump golf club lobby

Suspect shot after firing handgun in Trump golf club lobby

Police said that an officer suffered an unspecified injury.

A person who police say was yelling "anti-Trump sentiment" was arrested early Friday after exchanging gunfire with officers within the foyer of a resort at a sprawling golf resort that the president owns close to Miami.

The president's son, Eric Trump, took to Twitter to thank the police for quickly taking down the threat. The suspect was armed with a handgun and had draped an American flag over a counter in the resort lobby. "They risked their lives knowing that that they had to get in there to save lives in that hotel".

He said the man was "actively shooting".

If he wanted to engage police, "he did succeed and he did lose", Perez said.

Authorities received a call of an active shooter at the Trump National Doral Golf Club at 1:30 a.m., said Juan Perez, director of the Miami-Dade police. Four Doral police officers and one Miami-Dade officer fired at him.

An investigation is under way involving local police, the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the Secret Service, according to CBS News.

The Secret Service issued a statement saying agents from the Miami Field Office were at the scene and working closely with other agencies.

As day was breaking, the large golf facility in the growing suburb was surrounded by a heavy police presence and news helicopters hovered over the scene. Oddi is in stable condition, according to Miami-Dade police.
