Shots Fired At Donald Trump's Mar-A-Lago Estate After Car Breaches Security

Shots Fired At Donald Trump's Mar-A-Lago Estate After Car Breaches Security

Two people have been arrested after a shooting at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.

A car is thought to have breached two security checkpoints at the gated estate and a police-involved shooting alter took place.

Whilst the President was not present at the time, he was due to arrive a few hours after the incident.

The authorities started to fire on the black SUV after it drove straight on through two checkpoints at the entrance to the estate at around 11:40am local time on Friday morning.

The two people who were inside the vehicle have now been arrested and taken into custody.

Florida Highway Patrol and Palm Beach Sheriff's Office deputies said that they pursued the car after it fled the scene.

Several officers fired shots at the car as it fled, but it is still not clear whether anyone was injured or not.

Trump was due to head down to the resort, where he spends much of his time, later on Friday afternoon. He intended to spend the weekend there, but it is now not clear whether he will still make the journey.
