WASHINGTON – Two people are being held in custody after a black vehicle breached two security checkpoints at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, according to media reports on Friday hours ahead of the president’s planned trip there.
The vehicle was heading to the property’s main entrance, NBC News said, citing the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office.
Florida Highway Patrol officers were pursuing the vehicle before it went past the two checkpoints, according to NBC affiliate WTVJ TV in Miramar, Florida.
Shots were fired, according to local media outlets.
Sources told WSVN that at least one of the suspects is believed to be a woman.
Trump was scheduled to leave Washington for his resort later on Friday afternoon.
