'Shots fired' at Trump golf club - cops scrambled

This was a definite attempt to lure officers into the lobby of that hotel.

Doral Police Chief Hernan Organvidez told news reporters that officers from Doral and Miami-Dade confronted the gunman immediately and exchanged gunfire with him.

Senior officers told USA news a "confrontation" with a man at the resort escalated and police shot the man.

An officer injured his arm but was not shot.

The president's son, Eric Trump, took to Twitter to thank the police for quickly taking down the threat. He's undergoing treatment for gunshot wounds, and his condition is unknown, authorities said. "We are not discounting anything at this point", he said.

The Trump National Doral, which includes several buildings for lodging and an expansive clubhouse, is among the largest hotels in the Miami suburb.

No one under Secret Service protection was affected by the shooting, a Secret Service representative said.

The golf resort previously known as the Doral Resort & Spa was purchased by the Trump Organization in 2012.

Fifteen of the 17 golf courses Trump owns worldwide-excluding his clubs in Dubai-made $221.9 million in 2017, according to his financial disclosure form for past year that the U.S. Office of Government Ethics released on Wednesday.
