Shots Fired At Trump's Miami Golf Course, One Arrested

A man has been detained after a shootout at the the Trump National Doral Golf Club, near Miami, Florida.

According to the Doral Police Department, one officer was wounded in a confrontation with a lone gunman who was then arrested. There are no other known victims and no further threat expected. According to CBS4 News in Miami.

Juan Perez, director of Miami-Dade Police, told reporters that the man was "yelling and spewing some information about Donald Trump" when police arrived at around 1:30am. The suspect was armed with a handgun and had draped an American flag over a counter in the resort lobby. The fire alarm has been set off, Perez believes in an attempt to lure police officers into the lobby.

In a subsequent exchange of gunfire with law enforcement, the suspect was shot "in the lower extremities" and taken into custody. An officer was wounded, but the injury was not from the gun shots. The detained man has been taken to a local hospital.

Perez said that it was too early to speculate on the man's motives. "We are not saying this is terrorism…we are not discounting anything at this point," he said.

The Trump National Doral Golf Club was first established in 1962 in a western suburb of Miami by real estate developer Alfred Kaskel. The Trump Organization purchased the resort in 2012 for $150 million from its bankrupt owners

The purchase and renovation of the resort was financed with a $125 million loan from Deutsche Bank.

The 800-acre resort's website describes the club as "a new generation of style and service," offering a 90-hole course, luxury spa, restaurants and accommodation.

According to the White House's official schedule, Trump is in Washington all day on Friday.

The Doral resort is one of 17 that Trump owns worldwide. The president has faced accusations of using his office to help his businesses make money, especially at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, where he has hosted world leaders such as Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Despite this, the resorts do not seem to have benefitted from his presidency. All but three of his golf courses worldwide posted losses last year.

Trump has also come in for criticism for the amount of time he has spent golfing or relaxing at his luxury resorts. According to The Wall Street Journal, the president spent almost one-third of of his first year in office at Trump-owned properties.

Trump famously criticised former President Barack Obama for playing too much golf during his time in office.
