Shootout With the Trump Hotel Gunman

Oddi, 42, entered the lobby of the Trump National Doral resort on May 18, 2018, and began shouting anti-Donald Trump rhetoric before firing a handgun into the ceiling, police said. He then unfurled an America flag on the lobby desk, video shows.

Officers from both the City of Doral and Miami-Dade Police Departments responded to the hotel. Upon locating Oddi in the lobby, an exchange of gunfire ensued.
