Man firing shots, ‘spewing’ about Pres. Trump, shot by police at Trump National Doral

Early Friday morning, the Sun-Sentinel reported that a balding man waving an American flag and “spewing information” about President Trump exchanged gunfire with police at the Trump National Doral and was shot by officers.

According to the Sun-Sentinel:

The shooting at the resort — located off the Palmetto Expressway at Northwest 36th Street and 87th Avenue — happened about 1:30 a.m., Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said during a pre-dawn news conference outside the resort that was carried live by local television stations.

“These officers did not hesitate for one second to engage this individual who was actively shooting in the lobby of the hotel,” Perez said.

The man who was shot — balding and with a close-cropped beard — was seen sitting up on a gurney as rescue workers took him to Kendall Regional Medical Center.

“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 shooting incident is not being investigated as an act of terrorism, but that possibility is not being ruled out, the report said.

The FBI, and, the Sun-Sentinel said, possibly other federal agencies, are at the scene.

Aside from the suspect, no one was hurt from the gunfire, but one police officer was injured and taken to the hospital, possibly with a broken wrist.

Eric Trump responded on Twitter:  “A huge thank you to the incredible men and women of the Department and . Every day they keep our community safe. We are very grateful to you!”

Naturally, the insane left responded with their trademark hate.
