The suspect, identified as 42-year-old Jonathan Oddi, was yelling about Trump when Miami-Dade and City of Doral police officers responded to the scene, a police spokesperson was quoted as saying by the Hill magazine.
The gunman took a flag from a pole in the rear of the resort complex, brought it into the lobby, draped it over a counter, yelled rhetoric against Trump and fired a gun into the air -- at the roof and chandeliers, Perez said.
He then "waited for officers to engage him", the officer said. Perez said the man's immediate motive seemed to be to lure police into a gunfight. "He did succeed (in luring police), and he did lose."
The President's son, Eric Trump, tweeted his thanks to the Miami-area Police Department following the incident.
