Donald Trump's Florida golf course under investigation for shooting

UPI News Service, 08/26/2007 

The state of Florida is investigating an accidental gunshot fired by a guard at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.

A guard allegedly fired a shot from his.38-caliber Smith & Wesson while unloading it and neither he nor the security firm reported the incident, which is illegal, the Palm Beach Post reported Sunday.

"The law requires private security people to report a firearm discharge within five days," said Terry McElroy, spokesman for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. "That didn't occur in this case. There is an investigation. It should be wrapped up within two to four weeks."

McElroy said the department received a tip that an armed guard at the club's gatehouse accidentally fired a shot and the bullet ricocheted off a ceiling camera before hitting a monitor.

Although, club director Bill O'Connor has denied the incident took place.

"I don't believe that this happened," he said. "We changed no camera or monitor due to an accidental discharge."
