Investigators were still piecing together how Mr. Oddi entered the Trump complex in the first place, but Mr. Perez said officials believed that the suspect had removed an American flag from a pole on the property and brought it into the hotel's marble-floored lobby at about 1:30 a.m. The man also reportedly was yelling about Trump and placed an American flag over the lobby counter. The Doral police said there was "no further threat" at the club.
