Shots fired outside Trump’s Mar-a-Lago; SUV breaches checkpoints; helicopter chase; 2 suspects in custody

Recommended Posts

Shots have been fired near President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla. after a vehicle breached a security checkpoint.


Florida Highway Patrol was pursuing a black SUV that was fleeing and breached two Mar-a-Lago security checkpoints, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office told ABC News.


Law enforcement fired their weapons, though further details of the shooting are not yet clear.


“The SUV breached both security checkpoints heading towards the main entrance,” the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office told Patch. “Officials … discharged their firearms at the vehicle.”


The SUV fled the security checkpoints, but was pursued by helicopter and eventually detained by police.

Two suspects are now in custody, according to CBS12.


The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office confirmed in a tweet at 1:12 p.m. EST that “Vehicle and suspects are in custody.”


WPBF 25 News’ Terri Parker said that both suspects are female.


Security checkpoints are in place as Trump is scheduled to arrive in Palm Beach on Friday evening.


The incident comes two months after a Chinese national received a prison sentence for breaching Mar-a-Lago grounds and providing false information to Secret Service.

The update isn’t nearly as exciting. 

Just normal ? behavior. Link to local update.



Frankly, I find it amazing that a drunken opera singer could purge & compromise TWO checkpoints to the President,  take multiple shots to the vehicle, then lose ALL law enforcement for 15 minutes even with a helicopter reportedly on the scene.

Maybe instead of arresting this woman, the CIA should recruit her.
