Police did not say if a weapon was recovered or offer other details on the incident.

It began at about 1:30 a.m. after a man reportedly walked into the lobby saying something about President Donald Trump, laid an American flag on a counter and set off a fire alarm, drawing law enforcement officials.

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

"Our officers responded with the assistance of Miami Dade", Organvidez said.

President Trump's son Eric Trump thanked officers in a Friday morning tweet.

Secret Service agents were on the scene and the FBI was also called to help in the investigation.

It was unclear whether the individual taken into custody was armed when police arrived on the scene early Friday morning, or had been at any time. The entrances were blocked, and yellow caution tape was stretched across the main gate.

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

The decision has been celebrated by campaigners, but they have also warned that net neutrality is still in imminent danger. This move was expected and is generally far removed from the public debate on net neutrality.


The Trump National Doral Golf Club was first established in 1962 in a western suburb of Miami by real estate developer Alfred Kaskel.

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. The huge property has 4 programs - its most signature being the Blue Monster, which has hosted quite a few PGA Tour and World Golf Championships occasions that includes the world's prime golfers. The announcement infuriated then-candidate Trump, who called the move to Mexico a "sad day for Miami, the United States and the game of golf".

Authorities said they are not ruling out terrorism, WPLG reported. Cadillac did not renew its title sponsorship of the event, and another sponsor that wanted to be at Doral could not be found, Finchem said.
