Gunman Ranting About Trump in Shootout at Resort

Jonathan Oddi removed a flag from the back of the Trump National Doral Miami resort and entered the lobby shouting “anti-Trump rhetoric,” later shooting into the ceiling and chandeliers as officer rushed in. Five officers fired and Oddi suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the legs.

A gunman ranting about President Trump walked into the lobby of Trump National Doral Miami resort early Friday morning, draped an American flag on the counter and began firing, the Miami Herald reports. The man — identified as Jonathan Oddi, 42, who was not a guest at the resort — waited in the lobby for police officers to arrive before luring them into a gunfight, authorities said. During the gunfight, the man was struck several times in the lower body. No workers at the resort or guests were injured.

Miami-Dade’s police director said Oddi removed a flag from the back of the property and entered the lobby shouting “anti-Trump rhetoric,” later shooting into the ceiling and chandeliers as officer rushed in. Five officers fired and Oddi suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the legs. Doral mayor J.C. Bermudez said authorities do not believe the shooting was terrorism related. The shooting unfolded at the sprawling West Miami-Dade resort, which was bought by the Trump Organization in 2012 and used to host the popular World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. The President’s son, Eric Trump, tweeted his appreciation to the police departments involved in the shootout.
