Report: Shots Fired At Mar-A-Lago, Heavy Police Presence
A black SUV breached two security checkpoints at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida on Friday, prompting officials to fire their weapons and eventually take two individuals into custody, according to the Sun Sentinel.
The SUV led Florida Highway Patrol troopers on a car chase, heading for Trump’s estate, where the vehicle blew past both security checkpoints on its way to the main entrance around 11:40 a.m.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said officials opened fire on the SUV, which sped away as the Highway Patrol and Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office helicopter followed in pursuit.
Law enforcement officials located the vehicle and took two people into custody, but the Sheriff’s Office has not released the individuals’ identities, disclosed whether any injuries were suffered in the shooting, or indicated why the SUV was headed for Mar-a-Lago.
