Man arrested after firing shots at Trump golf club

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

Gunman carrying American flag, ranting about president shot at Trump National Doral

Florida police shot a man early this morning after a 911 call reporting an active shooter at the Trump National Doral Golf Club, authorities said.

The man was "yelling and spewing" some information about Trump and draped a US flag over a counter, Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said.

Doral police said in a tweet that they had taken one individual into custody, but that nobody was found with injuries at the Trump National Doral Miami resort.

"He had an American flag that he did drape over the counter - that all will be part of the investigation, we're going to take it from there and see what his real motives are", Perez said.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement was investigating the shooting, the Miami-Dade Police Department said. As of January 19, Trump had outpaced Obama in the number of golf outings he had taken, 44 compared to Obama's 29 during the same time frame, according to PolitiFact. Eastern time and Doral Police Department officers responded with assistance from the Miami-Dade Police department. "They risked their lives knowing that that they had to get in there to save lives in that hotel". Police said there was a definite attempt to draw officers to the scene.

This is a breaking news story. Its signature course is the Blue Monster at Doral.

The Trump International Hotel is less than a mile from the White House.

Its website describes it as an 800-acre resort with 643 total guest rooms, more than 100,000 square feet (9,300 square meters) of event space and four golf courses.
