Police responded to an active shooter report at the Trump National Doral Miami resort early Friday morning.

The fire alarm was blaring, which Perez said was an attempt by the suspect to lure officers into the lobby.

He is in stable condition at a local hospital with "multiple wounds to his legs from gunfire", according to Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez.

A Doral police officer was injured in the wrist, and officials said it was not "firearm-related". Earlier, police said the suspect was wounded.

They said that once officers arrived, they exchanged fire with a man carrying a handgun.

In describing the suspect, Perez said that "this guy was ready for war, he was waiting for our officers to come in", Fox News reported.

"He was yelling and spewing some information about President Trump and that's what we know so far". Though the precise phrases have been unclear, Perez stated it was an "anti-Trump sentiment" and the shooter "had an American flag that he did drape over-the-counter". Every day they keep our community safe.

Perez said the U.S. Secret Service was on the scene, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was on the way, but that local police were in charge for the time being.

"Special Agents from the Miami Field Office are on the scene and working closely with our law enforcement partners".

The Trump Organization bought the golf resort, formerly known as the Doral Resort and Spa, in 2012. According to CBS News, they confirmed that no "protectees were in the Miami region at the time of the incident".
