  • Police take down active shooting suspect at Trump National Doral Golf Club

Doral and Miami-Dade police were sent to the Trump National after receiving multiple calls of an active shooter in the lobby of the resort's hotel around 1:30 a.m. A man shouting about Donald Trump entered the president's south Florida golf course early Friday, draped a flag over a lobby counter and exchanged fire with police before being arrested, police said. There are no other known victims and no further threat expected.

"It appears he was trying to engage our police officers in some type of ambush-type attack, trying to lure our police officers and when I say "our", (I mean) both police agencies, Miami-Dade and Doral, into this gun fight", said Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez during a press conference.

Oddi was shooting in the lobby of the hotel, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.

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

Earlier reports said a police officer had wounded the suspect.
