Man Shot At Trump Miami Resort: Here’s What You Should Know

A man was shot and arrested early Friday morning after exchanging gunfire with police officers at the Trump National Doral Golf Club near Miami.

Doral Police Chief Hernan Organvidez told reporters that police were notified of an “active shooter” in the resort around 1:30 a.m. ET. Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said the man was shouting about President Donald Trump, “actively shooting,” and had draped an American flag over the counter of the resort lobby.

“He was yelling and spewing some information about President Trump and that’s what we know so far. And he had an American flag that he did drape over the counter,” Perez said.

Perez also said a Doral officer received an unspecified injury but is in good condition. “You know, these officers did not hesitate one second to engage this individual that was actively shooting in the lobby of the hotel,” he said. “They risked their lives knowing that they had to get in there to save lives in that hotel.”

The shooter was later identified as 42-year-old Doral resident, Jonathan Oddi. Oddi, who lists himself as a fitness instructor, real-estate investor, and manager at Pegasus, a business dealing in minerals and gemstones, lives a few miles away from the resort. He appears to be from South Africa.

Eric Trump thanked the responding officers early Friday morning.

  • Remember the 2nd Amendment? He was simply exercising his right to bear arms against an oppressive government.

    Suddenly you object?

    • the only oppression is coming from the left. The left wants to remove our constiutional rights. The current POTUS is supporting the citizens of this country and the documents that gave us our freedoms. Silly remark.

    • poppDavid, you have no idea what it is like to live in an oppressive nation under martial law. Zip. Nada. If you had a logical argument about why he was being oppressed, you would have made it. Name calling, vulgarity, or scatology does absolutely nothing to support your narrative.Vulgarity is trolling for an emotional response hidden behind a mask [fake profile] like ANTIFA or the KKK is juvenile.You are not the Lone Ranger, Green Hornet, Guy Fawkes, or the Dark Knight.I am sure NSA has got your name anyway.

    • Looks like the Dems lost another voter :)

      Their rabid actions should be responded to like that of a rabid dog.

  • Key phrase/ "A man was shot and arrested early Friday morning after exchanging gunfire with police officers at the Trump National Doral Golf Club near Miami." So he was shooting. The headline made it look like he was just yelling and got shot.

  • "Man Shot At Trump Miami Resort: Here’s What You Should Know"

    Are they sure the shooter was a male and not Maxine Waters dressed as a man?

  • He removed a flag and then started spewing Trump hate? Last August he became a US citizen? What did he learn in citizenship courses? How watered down are they?
    In many ways he seems like a typical Trump supporter. Some of his news posts are just everyday things that do not point to a record of violent intent.
    Except one, he's an anti semite from South Africa is that the nut that fell off?

  • Great name for this terrorist "wannabe"; ODDY. Yes folks, he is quite odd, peculiar, weird, wacko, and strange. Wonder why he left his home port in South Africa?

  • What is wrong with these people? They have lost their freaking minds! Glad no one was hurt besides the idiot involved.

  • Prayers for the first responders and the people working at the club and all the innocent people there. Prayers for justice to be served to the shooter. Law & Order now.
