Police responding overnight to a call of shots fired at President Donald Trump's golf resort in Doral, Florida, took one person into custody.

Police said the gunman, who was identified as Jonathan Oddi, 42, of Doral, took a flag from the back area of the golf club and went into the lobby, draped the flag on the counter and started shouting about Trump.

"There was some gunfire prior to the officers arriving on the scene. the fire alarm was set off".

"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.

He says officers from Doral and Miami-Dade were met "with an individual with a handgun".

Perez said a Doral officer received an unspecified injury.


He then "waited for officers to engage him", Perez said.

"He was yelling and spewing some information about President Trump and that's what we know so far". Police were preparing a search warrant to enter Oddi's house, Perez said.

Initial reports are that he had been waving an American flag inside the lobby of the resort and anxious workers called 911, WTVJ-Ch. "We are not discounting anything at this point", he said. Every day they keep our community safe. According to CBS News, they confirmed that no "protectees were in the Miami region at the time of the incident".

"We immediately were able to neutralize this threat", Mr. Perez said.

An investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is underway, and the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, FBI are looking into it as well.

The golf resort beforehand referred to as the Doral Resort & Spa was bought by the Trump Group in 2012.
