Man firing gun and ranting about Trump shot by police inside Trump National Doral resort


A gunman ranting about President Donald Trump walked into the lobby of Trump National Doral Miami resort early Friday morning, draped an American flag on the counter and began firing.

The man — who was not a guest at the resort — waited in the lobby for police officers to arrive before luring them into a gunfight, authorities said. During the gunfight, the unidentified man was struck several times in the lower body. No workers at the resort or guests were injured. A Doral cop hurt his wrist.

“There’s a shootout in the lobby,” said Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez. “He’s at the hospital stable. Don’t know how many times he was hit.”

News footage shows a bald man arriving at Kendall Regional Medical Center on a stretcher. Doral mayor J.C. Bermudez said authorities do not believe the shooting was terrorism related.
