Man shot by police during confrontation at Trump National Doral, reports say

A man who was allegedly "actively shooting" in the lobby of Trump National Doral Miami in Doral, Florida, and "yelling" about President Donald Trump was shot and wounded by police early Friday morning, authorities said.

The hotel is a luxury resort part of Trump National Doral Golf Club, an 800-acre resort owned by President Trump that is located near Miami.

CBS News correspondent Manuel Bojorquez reports that police believe the suspect tried to lure law enforcement officers to the scene, and a fire alarm was set off prior to their arrival. "Don't know how many times he was hit", Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said.

He says officers from Doral and Miami-Dade were met "with an individual with a handgun". Although the exact words were unclear, Perez said it was an "anti-Trump sentiment" and the shooter "had an American flag that he did drape over the counter". After exchanging fire with the suspect, officers were able to stop and apprehend the man.

Trump's financial disclosure to the u-s ethics office shows 2017 revenue from his golf holdings are down $67 million from 2016.

When officers arrived, the man allegedly shot at them. A Miami-Dade crime scene truck was parked inside the gate.

Eric Trump, executive vice-president of the Trump organization, tweeted early Friday morning, "A huge thank you to the incredible men and women" of the departments, adding that "every day they keep our community safe". No one under Secret Service protection was in the region at the time of the incident, the agency said.

In addition to the local police, officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the Secret Service were on the scene.

Perez said the Secret Service was on the scene, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was on the way, but that local police were in charge for the time being. The massive property has four courses - its most signature being the Blue Monster, which has hosted numerous PGA Tour and World Golf Championships events featuring the world's top golfers.

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