In Custody After Reports of Shots Fired at Trump Golf Resort

When officers arrived, they found the suspect armed with a handgun, Perez said. Police did not confirm reports that the suspect was injured during his interaction with officers.

Four officers entered the lobby and confronted the man. Officers shot the man who was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center.

Miami-Dade police Director Juan Perez said officers were called to the hotel lobby after receiving 911 calls from employees about an active shooter.

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". One unidentified officer sustained an injury to his wrist, but he was not shot, according to authorities.

"He had an American flag that he did drape over the counter", Perez said.

In a statement posted to Twitter around 11:30 p.m., Doral Police said there are "No known Victims at this point". "We are not saying this is terrorism".

Secret Service agents were on the scene and the FBI was also called to help in the investigation. The World Golf Championship tournament had been held at the resort since the 1960s until past year.
